According the the US Census 1 in 3 children grow up in a single parent home without their father present (source).
“Daddy Don’t Go” is a documentary by Emily Abt and Andrew Osborne that looks at one year in the lives of four different fathers who have chosen to be the exception. They are fighting against their pasts of poverty, criminal history, unemployment, and drug/alcohol abuse to try and be the best possible father to their children.
“The film poses urgent questions that expand the ongoing national dialogue concerning fatherhood. Can a man be a good dad in spite of not being a great provider? How does being a father shift a man’s identity?”
The documentary is due to be finished mid-2014, as long as it receives the needed funding.
