The deadbeat dad narrative is well-known in our community, but while single mothers routinely receive praise for providing for their children, rarely does anyone shed light on the socioeconomic pressures struggling fathers face in their quest to handle their responsibilities.

Omar Epps and Malik Yoba are aiming to flip the script, literally, as executive producers of a new documentary directed by Emily Abt, Daddy Don’t Go, which follows the journey of four young fathers attempting to navigate parenthood.

Alex, Nelson, Roy and Omar are the four young fathers documented in the film, offering up and oft-neglected look into the lives of low-income fathers attempting o be present in their children’s lives in spite of limited means. Check out the trailer below which will make its debut at the 2015 DOC NYC later this month.
