"Brand: A Second Coming" follows Brand as he dives headlong into drugs, sex and fame in an attempt to find happiness, only to realize that our culture feeds us bad ideas and empty idols. Through his stand up, Brand explores his own true icons - Gandhi, Che Guevara, Malcolm X and Jesus Christ. We follow his evolution from addict to Hollywood star to an unexpected political disruptor and newfound hero to the underserved. Timoner explores the contradiction between Brand's clarion call for revolution and his hunger to transcend pop fame. Will Brand hold fast against the roar of criticism to break out of the very system that built him?
