In Aleksei Balabanov's powerful follow-up to his uncompromising Brother, Chechen veteran Danila (Sergei Bodrov Jr) arrives in Moscow. There, he meets an old army buddy, Konstantin, who tells him how his twin brother, Dimitri, has been forced into signing a crooked contract with a U.S. ice hockey team by the manager and his Russian partners.
Soon after, Danila finds Konstantin dead. Vowing to avenge the death of his comrade, Danila sets out on a trail that leads him to Chicago and a whole new world. A powerful examination of the values and ethics of the U.S. and Soviet criminal fraternities, Brother 2 is an exhilarating, non-stop ride straight to the rotten heart of the black economy of both countries.
