    • Synopsis
    • The Brick House is a blend of western and fantasy genres in a fresh retelling of the beloved classic "three little pigs" tale.
      Jack, Curly and Bill have been distant brothers for years. When their Uncle dies in a tragic house fire, they are reunited by their inheritance of his countryside home. Jack, longing to patch things up with his younger brothers, suggests they try to repair it in order to more easily sell the land. The boys agree, and for the first time in years, they set off to do something together.
      Trouble is not far behind them when they arrive in their late Uncle's town, where a trio of business tycoon wolves, who's seedy plans have them eagerly waiting on the homestead's public auction, quickly learn that the boys' inheritance won't let that happen. Meanwhile, the brothers have begun the arduous task of tearing down and rebuilding the tattered home. Jack works happily with his brothers by his side, while Curly and Bill labor away with their eyes on the prize of making their fortune once they sell the land.
      When the wolves make the brothers a deal for the land, Jack's family interests conflict with Curly and Bill's payday dreams. What was at first a glimmer of hope that they could be a family again becomes a feud that splits them in three once more. And what was supposed to be an easy buyout for the wolves becomes a thorn in their side that calls for a deadly solution.
