This video is the brainchild of first time director Chris Roe, who sets out on a round the world journey with his baby boomer father, in search of insight into the meaning of relationships. As they struggle with their own father-son issues, the duo visit a variety of cultures in Italy, Soweto, New Delhi, New Zealand, and America. They interview international father-son teams, as well as ordinary men coming to terms with themselves. They meet with Julian Lennon, who talks about his famous father John Lennon. The senior and junior Roe face their fears and frustrations with each other, with love, anger and poignancy.
