Based on real-life events, the protagonists of Flesh and Blood are played by their real-life selves. Upon being released from prison, Mark (Green Room and Scott Pilgrim vs the World’s Mark Webber) is reunited with his family: his half-brother Guillermo (Guillermo Santos), who has just been diagnosed with Asperger’s, and his mother, Cheri (Cheri Honkala), an anti-poverty advocate and human rights activist who started her political career and ran for Vice President of the Green Party in 2012. Mark needs to rebuild his life and face his demons in the hope of finding an answer to pain and addiction.


A well-known actor, Mark Webber has starred in over than 40 films, working for talented directors such as Jim Jarmusch, Lars Von Trier, Todd Solondz, Thomas Vinterberg and Woody Allen. Flesh and Blood, his fourth feature as a director, is toeing the line between reality and fiction and all the characters are played by Webber’s family—with the exception of actress Madeline Brewer (Orange Is the New Black, The Handmaid’s Tale), in the role of Maddy. With this very personal story, deeply rooted in the socio-political reality of the U.S. and achieved through a skilful direction, Webber opens up to its audience about where he comes from. .
