A wonderful and heartfelt comedy that takes place in a dystopian society where the state has the power to determine who can and cannot father children.


Four men show up to a government-sanctioned retreat in the remote mountains of California. Each has their own reason for wanting to be a father. Each has to be chosen as “worthy” of the role. When they show up at the site, they find no guide or instructions. Confusion and panic sets in, as they are left to their own devices and must prove to themselves—and to each other—that they have what it takes.


DADDY is a brilliant observation on the modern world, while addressing larger topics that affect our hearts and psyches.
