Official synopsis:

Blood brothers . . .
Michael has finally found the one thing he always yearned for—family. When his brother Trevor arrives in Roswell, Michael will do anything to please him. But soon Trevor's loyalties come into question—and Michael is caught in the cross fire.
Maria's little brother has disappeared and she knows the kidnappers are trying to get to her and her friends. Devastated and guilt-ridden, Maria turns to Michael for help. But will he be there for her, or has Michael himself become the enemy?
