Panabi is a 12-year old boy, who lives in a big block of flats in Warsaw. The block is ruled by Bocian, a ruthless young thug, who - as usual – dates the prettiest girl. Unfortunately, Panabi's brother is crazy about Bocian's girl. As Christmas draws closer, disaster looms. Brotherdog, a loose adaptation of a short story by renowned Israeli writer Etgar Keret, is a twisted Christmas carol set in a Polish housing estate.
