Half Brothers: Luke Greenfield Breaks The Cliché About Mexico With Humor [Exclusive Interview] 

Luke Greenfield is the director of the new comedy, Half Brothers. Greenfield does an outstanding job directing American comedy and Mexican soap opera drama in one film. This humor is used to bring out a different point of view of a clinched concept of Mexico.

The Synopsis

Renato (Luis Gerardo Méndes), a successful Mexican aviation executive, is shocked to discover he has an American half brother he never knew about, the free-spirited Asher (Connor del Rio). The two very different half brothers are forced on a road journey together masterminded by their ailing father, tracing the path their father took as an immigrant from Mexico to the US.
