Wonderland: A Dad Is Born
Award-winning filmmaker Kira Phillips follows three men in the weeks before and after they become a father. She observes the struggle to be ‘new men’, witnesses the drama of birth, and joins them on the steep learning curve of paternity leave. City HR worker Jamie attacks the prospect of parenthood by reading every self-help guide he can, but nothing quite prepares him for his new life. Minicab driver Viktor is resolved to put a history of womanising behind him and become the perfect family man. And for multi-millionaire trader Greg, his girlfriend's pregnancy offers a second chance to be the dad he wants to be – very soon after divorcing from his wife and baby son. The one thing that is true for all these men is that the experience is nothing like they expected. And it leaves them all softer, gentler and much, much more tired.
