Two slow-witted brothers stumble their way through life after a bizarre accident leaves them parentless.
Chocolate Milk is the story of two slow-witted brothers, Kyle and Phillip, who are forced to fend their way through life after a low-flying Cessna killed their mother. Kyle is an eternal optimist and Phillip is depressed, lazy and lives in the past. This film follows Kyle and his determination to get Phillip off the couch and out into the world by going on a job interview, which goes terribly wrong.

Despite the bitter irony of his lactose intolerance, Nathan would like to thank Mike Ring and Chocolate Milk for bringing back some of his best (powdered) Nesquik Chocolate Milk memories—those were the days.
Nathan got his acting start on the theater stage, performing in such roles as Hally in Master Harold and the boys; Mercutio in Shakespeare’s R & J; and Richard in The Lion in Winter. In addition to numerous plays and short films, he can be seen as Sam North in the feature film The Other Side and in the feature Yesterday Was A Lie, which spawned a web series starring Nathan’s hapless lab assistant character.
