Call Me Dad explores the painful and delicate issue of domestic violence. For some of these fathers, their fists are their weapons. For others, words and manipulation are the most potent. This abuse is intended to isolate, diminish and control the people they love. Now, these men are seeking change. They have come together in this documentary to talk, challenge and support each other to be better men, partners and fathers to their children.
