Growing up in a small town in Italy during the '60s and '70s, brothers Accio and Manrico embody and celebrate opposing political stances, but share an impassioned love of the same woman. 'My Brother is an Only Child',a sort of political-comedy, observes the brothers over the course of 15 years, against the ever-shifting backdrop of tumultuous Italian sociopolitical history.
