Summary, Etc. By turns confessional, nostalgic, heartwarming and harrowing, the award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard and his brother, an audience-favorite actor, Clint Howard as they frankly and fondly share their unusual family story of navigating and surviving life as sibling child actors. Ron and his younger brother, Clint, examine their childhoods in detail for the first time. With the perspective of time and success, the Howard brothers delve deep into an upbringing that seemed normal to them yet was anything but. By turns confessional, nostalgic, heartwarming, and harrowing, this is a dual narrative that lifts the lid on the Howard brothers' closely held lives.
