Struck By Lightning

Raul and Romet are two film school students who one day wish to become world famous film directors. However this is not the reason they made this film. They had a really cool friend Brandon. He was an upcoming rapper and also their favourite actor. However during a summer holiday in America the brothers get a call, that Brandon has killed himself. It all seemed so sudden and they couldn't even say goodbye. So the brothers attempt to understand the mysterious end of their friend, by making a movie of it.
