One trip can change a life forever.

This is one of the main themes of “Blood Brother”, a documentary that will be shown Tuesday in the South Ballroom of the Memorial Union, beginning at 7 p.m.

“Blood Brother” follows Rocky Braat, a college student with a cynical outlook on life. When Braat finds himself in India one summer, he comes in contact with a group of orphan children. The kids are not only orphaned, but also saddled with AIDS. 

Braat’s life quickly changes as he moves to India and restarts his life helping those who are indisposed.

“Blood Brother” is being shown on World AIDS Day, Dec. 1, recognized every year since 1988 when the World Health Organization established it.

“Blood Brother” has a runtime of 92 minutes and is free for all to attend.
