Synopsis

Brussels, today.

Issachar et Zabulon, two broke twenty-something brothers with a knack for stupidity and trouble, live in a low-income housing complex in Brussels with their mother Cashmere. When they lose their mother’s beloved dog, January-Jack, she gives them an ultimatum – find him in 24 hours or get kicked out of the house.

A hilarious adventure through contemporary Brussels, MOTHER SCHMUCKERS features appearances by French actor Mathieu Amalric (THE FRENCH DISPATCH, SOUND OF METAL) and Claire Bodson (YOUNG AHMED). As the two brothers encounter a cast of eccentric characters, they’re never too far from trouble.
