Step Up: Fatherhood In America
This documentary reveals the effects of absentee fathers on both the child(ren) and the family as a whole. It follows the stories of several fathers who are either struggling to fulfill their obligations as fathers, and/or facing their feelings regarding their own absent fathers. The film’s goal is to draw awareness to the negative impacts left on a child’s psyche when the father is not a part of his or her life.
The documentary features candid, in-depth interviews from individuals from all walks of life, including a popular radio disc jockey, a street outreach manager (Conan Harris) – even a group of single mothers who provide real insight into the dynamics of the family circle, particularly when the father is absent.
