Like Father, Like Son

Feature   |   English   |  USA

Production Status: In Development

 

Tag Line: The choice between country and family is hell!

Log Line: Like Father, Like Son shows the extraordinary circumstances that test the loyalty shown by family, old friends, and strangers in a world in turmoil. Set in Afghanistan.

Synopsis:
Like Father, Like Son is a modern day American War story (similar in style to Hurt Locker, Battle of Algiers)  of two families - one American, the other Afghan fathers, and sons thrown together by war; a clash of generations, cultures and time.  Like Father Like Son reveals two parallel stories: an American military family caught between a son’s determination to break free from his father's shadow and father’s determination to find his son behind enemy lines; and, an Afghan father who trained by the Americans to fight the Soviets and his son who is transformed from extremism to his duty to his father and country.  Like Father, Like Son reveals the kind of extraordinary circumstances and the type of undying loyalty shown by family, friends, and even strangers that can only be forged by a world in turmoil.
