Mary Stuart Masterson (Kate Brasher) stars in KATE BRASHER, an inspirational family drama about a single mother whose life changes when she ends up working at the community advocacy center where she seeks help. Brasher, a financially strapped single parent of two teenage sons, Daniel (Gregory Smith) and Elvis (Mason Gamble), is a hardworking mom full of love who will do anything to give her kids every advantage.

When Kate walks through the doors of Brothers Keepers asking for legal advice, it changes her life forever. There she encounters a feisty attorney, Abbie Schaeffer (Rhea Perlman), and the center’s tough, street-smart director, Joe Almeida (Hector Elizondo). Together, they show Kate that by helping others she can create a better life for herself and her boys.

At Brothers Keepers, it is all about giving a voice to the voiceless and Kate Brasher intends that they be heard. Although many obstacles stand in her way, she remains steadfast in her belief that, no matter what, the universe will provide.
