What sets your Project apart from what is currently available?

Directed by Bradley Hayes and filmed all across the United States, The Father’s Heart charts the experiences of ordinary men who have been called to father a generation but also, sons and daughters who need to be fathered. A film that unlocks those deep seated longings to father the orphans and to be a son or daughter who asks for wisdom. Stories that will breathe fresh life into those who struggle in their relationships with their own sons and daughters. The Father’s Heart offers rare glimpses into the lives of fathers turning their hearts to the young, but also sons and daughters turning to the wisdom of the fathers, and in the end painting a picture both convicting and intimately engaging.

Why are you and your team the best people on the planet to handle this project?
