Mike’s dead dad’s friend’s daughter wants him to father her child. His boyfriend Bert isn’t convinced.

Their housemate Sofia has her own fish to fry. She needs to find a man before it’s too late, but her dad keeps getting in the middle.

A journey through fatherhood past and present, full of inventive comedy and unforgettable emotion.
