Parenting is no joke! In this light-hearted family film, one dad shakes off a mid-life crisis and reconnects with his family,with his Bible in one hand and his phone in the other.
When Ben Marcus finds himself in a rut despite having a beautiful family, church home, and a well-paying job, he starts to wonder what’s missing. His past as a child has something to do with it, but Ben has found a way to deal with it…or so he thinks. Through his son, he soon stumbles upon a new exciting pop-culture trend, and it’s not long before he starts to gain money and fame through it. All is well until this new venture starts to mess with his life and family, causing him especially to question his parenting. The questions don’t stop there—they stretch all the way back to his past; and the answers he arrives at not only cause him to reprioritize what’s most important, but they open his eyes to see that he never truly put the past to rest, and no amount of money, attention-seeking and fame could fix it. Only the power of the Gospel.
Selfie Dad comes at a time when much of the world is driven toward self-worship and indulgence. A funny, lighthearted and impactful film that is much-needed today.
