Daddy

by Gerald McCullouch

USA 2015, 89 min

A story about a friendship, family, getting older, and the high cost of things left unsaid

Colin McCormack thinks he has it all – a great job, a stream of hot young guys, and a best friend whose devotion he takes for granted. When a charming intern sweeps Colin off his feet, his lifelong friendship is put to the test. In the intern, Colin sees his chance to start a family, but what he comes to discover may cost Colin everyone – and everything – he holds dear.
