The Screen Guide

LITTLE BROTHER, LITTLE SISTER is a film that records the unpredictable and heroic journey an Australian family undertake as they set out to transform themselves into something greater than they already are. It depicts the story of the Low family as they embrace the experience of instantly extending their family by adopting young Ethiopians; Sisay (seven) and Eleni (five). It also tells the story of how Eleni and Sisay, recently orphaned, cope with the profound changes in their lives and how they learn to become 'Lows' as they assimilate the values of the family and of Australian culture.
