NaRa Films and O.Y.'s Spotlite Entertainment's Indie Crime Thriller titled Blood First, written and directed by Najaa Young and produced by Rasheed A. Jihad and Olufemi Young, will be released in theaters this summer, thanks to a distribution deal with Entertainment One and N.S.U.C. Entertainment Group. 

Blood First, about two brothers following their father's footsteps into a lifestyle of crime of violence, stars Edwin Lee Gibson, Aki Jamal, Carter Redwood, LaMar Darnell Fields and others. 

Here's more from the press release:

Blood First chronicles the lives of two brothers who haphazardly follow their father's footsteps into a dangerous life of crime and violence. When faced with serving lengthy prison sentences for their crimes one brother chooses to cooperate with the prosecution while the other does not, testing the meaning of loyalty, honor and blood. The film’s non-linear storytelling fluidly mixes the past with the present as audiences experience what events occurred in their lives to make these men who they are today.
