We are told by American culture that fatherhood is important, but the real, underlying message is: “Back to work, dads!” The result: millions of people are growing up with absentee dads. What’s worse is that so many of them are blissfully unaware of the damage done to their lives. How did this happen? What can be done about it? And why are the dads who are extra-involved with their families typically castigated as not being manly enough or sufficiently committed to their work? The Evolution Of Dad explores these questions and many more, cutting to the core of one of the most invisible, yet important, issues of our time: fatherhood. It is a film for dads young and old, their partners and their children. You will never look at your father the same way again.
