Daddy & Papa, the documentary is a heart warming and yet realistic story of several families and the process of becoming a family unit. There are trials and tribulations within any families decision to become a family, and I think Johnny did a great job explicating those difficulties...and the rewards in this absolutely magnificent work. There are four homosexual fathers (or sets of) that travel through the process of becoming a family. They come up against several obstacles, not the least of which are homosexuality, racism, divorce, single parent hood. This film is produced by new day films, their company typically produces films with a message and this is not exception. Families come in all sizes and shapes, but it is truly love that binds us all.
