The New Zealander and Olympian rowing champion Rob Hamill travels to Cambodia to seek justice for his eldest brother Kerry, who disappeared without a trace while sailing from Australia to Southeast Asia in 1978. Along with two sailing mates, Kerry was murdered by the Khmer Rouge regime.

MUBI's take

If you saw the Oscar®-nominated, Cannes-winning doc The Missing Picture you know how badly the cinema needs to tell the many stories—both personal and larger—of the Khmer Rouge’s reign of terror in Cambodia. Brother Number One tells of a haunting personal story, and a resilient quest for justice.
