Movie Info

In this very personal documentary, director Marco Williams unveils his seven-year quest to find his natural father, a man his mother barely knew. Traveling in many places in the U.S. and as far afield as Paris, he interviews family members to better understand the missing man, and the documentary culminates in the older man meeting this child he did not know he had. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Top Critic

Achieves acute self-awareness, not of the difficulties of fatherless black families, but rather the astonishing steel-willed strengths, sacrifices and courage of the extraordinary women presiding over them. A celebration, and a truly feminist story.
