Pirate Brothers a.k.a Mortal Enemies
‘The Pirate Brothers’, is an action-packed tale of truth, brotherhood and vengeance. When young Sunny loses his protective brother to a gang of thugs, he vows from then on to seek eventual revenge. Years later, he ends up in an orphanage where he befriends an innocent boy who has lost both parents.
Verdy, the boy, suggests that he and Sunny become brothers, so that they themselves can be a family. Sunny accepts and protects Verdy as once his big brother protected him. Their paths split when Verdy is adopted by a wealthy family. Destined for a different path and separated by fate, their lives cross again when Verdy, now successful and wealthy is kidnapped by pirates during a holiday with his fiance. The pirates' intentions become clear, it’s not a ransom they want, it’s the eventual death of Verdy. Things turn for the worse when, after years of separation, Sunny appears as a member of the gang of pirates. They are brothers not by blood but by Will: but is this enough to save Verdy?
