Striking couple Phoon and Yuke, urban professionals in their 30s, seemingly have it all—except for one thing: they've always dreamt of being parents. When they adopt the adorable young boy Butr, the pair become "Daddy" and "Papa" and their family is complete. However, schoolyard bullying and interference from prejudiced parents brings unwelcome attention from child protective services. A tender portrait of same-sex fatherhood, this film makes a heartfelt plea in support of rainbow families.
