     An elaborate experiment with the concept of Before-and-After photographs, Your Brother. Remember? splices and dices home videos, Hollywood film footage, and live performance. As kids in rural America, Zachary and his older brother Gator loved making parodies of their favorite films, most notably Jean-Claude Van Damme’s karate opus Kickboxer, and the notorious cult film Faces of Death. Then 20 years passed. Estranged from his family, Zack returned to his childhood home to re-create these films, shot for shot, as precisely as possible – but now seen through a 20-year lens of emotional and physical wear and tear. One brother became an actor, and one self-destructed. Which is which? How different are these lives? Could this story have turned out the other way around? Maybe. And what are these peculiar parralels in Mr. Van Damme's life, as it unfolded over the same 20 years? Born in Belgium or America, the simple childhood desire for love gets confused with fame, drugs and ambition. The liars believe their own lies, and "real-life" clashes with the "art of manipulation." But with Mr. Van Damme and renowned pathologist Dr. Francis Gross in their corner, Zack and Gator step into the ring one last time for a title shot at redemption.
