Why Not Dad? is the result of 9 months of ethnographic collaboration between the filmmakers and a group of stay-at-home fathers in San Francisco. Weekly contact with the men and their children gave rise to an unprecedented filmmaking collaboration in which the fathers were able to help shape the direction and development of the film. From this collaborative partnership comes an impressively honest and emotional portrayal of modern fatherhood where four men discuss their experiences confronting traditional gender norms in parenting, the need for support from other stay-at-home fathers and how the gender role-reversal affects their children and their wives.
