Written by Cunningham, G-Men follows two estranged brothers — who both claim to be government agents, even though one is a hardcore FBI agent and the other’s a part-time mailman — struggle to put their vast differences aside when they reunite to help their larger-than-life mother move on after the death of their father. They hate this new arrangement at first, but ultimately they realize that sometimes it’s the people you agree with the least who inspire you to be your best.
