Summary

Baby mamas, single mothers, deadbeat dads, absent fathers: these polarizing terms are commonplace in today's African-American community. Nearly 72% of black children are born out of wedlock, and most are being raised by single mothers. Why is it that black men continue to neglect their parental responsibilities? The film investigates the effects that colonization and slavery have had on the black family unit, which was once solid and intact.
