What has Bondi Done to my Brother?

A Film by Morgan Wright

Synopsis

What has Bondi done to my brother? is a documentary about two estranged brothers, Joe and Tom. Growing up, older brother Joe had no time for Tom and cared only for money and success; inevitably landing his dream finance job in Sydney. But then Joe moved to Bondi Beach, quit his job, grew his hair and opened a vegan cafe. After years of hardly speaking, Tom thought he finally had a chance to connect with his brother… So he hopped on a plane to Bondi.
