Brothers JP and Vincent are inseparable and unwavering in their devotion to their violent, uncomfortably close-knit Québécois crime family. When JP’s conscience rears its head and he begins to question his life as a career criminal, the family threatens to come apart at the seams. Built around explosive performances, Family First’s blistering narrative refuses to let up as it races towards its thrilling final moments.
