On a cold morning in the middle of country Victoria, two brothers arrive at their family home intent on murdering their stepfather Rodger. Terry and Jeff’s motive is simple – killing their step-dad will render their dying Mother’s plan to change her will in his favor redundant. A staged “suicide” has been meticulously planned but there is one thing the boys didn’t take into account – spending an entire day together. Old grudges, different worldviews and a general troubled history will pit these two brothers against each other. ‘Brothers’ Nest’ is a tragic comedy about family loyalty and murder – because after all “blood is thicker than water”.
