Any father who doubts that his absence isn't having a damaging effect on his children should listen to the telling letters in the new documentary 'Dear Daddy.' The film explores the long-term effects of absentee fathers on eight young women in Washington, D.C., and aims to bring awareness to the epidemic of single-parenting in the black community.
"82.3% is the number of African-American children born since 1990 that will not live in the same home as their biological fathers before graduating High School," according to iYAGO Entertainment Group.
In the film, director Janks Morton attempts to locate the girls' fathers to show them their daughters' heartfelt letters and ultimately to reunite the fathers and daughters. Watch the preview to get a glimpse of 'Dear Daddy's' emotional reunions.
