Based on actual events, Unto The Son, offers a personal story filled with heart and emotion, following a young man and his family’s journey after the mysterious disappearance of his gangster father.

“When I was a young man I discovered that the father I thought was dead was very much alive and living overseas. To say that it’s been a long road to having the opportunity to tell my story and share my truth would be a gross understatement. This story is the reason I dreamed of becoming a filmmaker, and it took me 23 years to make sense of it all, and find the courage to write it. I know no other film I make will ever be as close to me as this. I am so excited to finally see this project come to life, and could not be more thrilled to tell it through our incredible cast.” – Corey Asraf
