The press release states that “The Dads” is a short documentary executive produced by Dwyane Wade. In this gentle meditation on fatherhood, brotherhood, and manhood, five fathers of trans children join Dennis Shepard – the father of slain gay college student Matthew Shepard – for a weekend fishing trip in rural Oklahoma. As the men cast their lines into the river, they find common ground across racial, geographical, and generational lines: their unconditional love for their children.”
