The Screen Guide

In the midst of a silent yet devastating epidemic of fatherlessness, CALL ME DAD is a film about fathers with broken families whose children are gone. Now, through a men’s program, they each have the chance to regain what’s lost, to transform himself and earn another shot at the title, ‘Dad’.
