This shows that a large part of our society believe it’s a woman’s responsibility to leave an abusive man in order to ‘fix’ the problem. This makes little sense to those who work every day with violent and abusive men.

Call Me Dad is a story about men who have perpetrated, or are at risk of perpetrating, family violence. At stake is the safety of children and partners, the stability of families, and the power we as a society have to intervene.

We follow these men over several months, as they attempt to change themselves, and heal fragile bonds with their loved ones.
