Carl takes his family and leaves the hustling lifestyle behind for something better. Carl, his wife Lorena (Zulay Henao), son Carl Jr., daughter Allie Black (Bresha Webb) and cousin Cronut (Lil Duval) pack up and move to Beverly Hills.

BRAND: A Second Coming follows comedian/author/activist Russell Brand as he dives headlong into drugs, sex & fame in an attempt to find happiness, only to realize that our culture feeds us bad ideas & empty idols. Through his stand up, Brand explores his own true icons -Gandhi, Che Guevara, Malcolm X & Jesus Christ- & evolves from addict & Hollywood star to an unexpected political disruptor & newfound hero to the underserved. Award-winning director, Ondi Timoner (DIG!, WE LIVE IN PUBLIC), explores the contradiction between Brand’s clarion call for revolution & his hunger to transcend pop fame. Will Brand hold fast against the roar of criticism to break out of the very system that built him? [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW Film Festival]
