So often we hear about the fathers that aren’t there for their children. And contrary to what you believe, it’s not just a black  or minority issue. There are countless families of all races and ethnicities who struggle with the issue of fatherlessness.

A new documentary Daddy Don’t Go attempts to challenge that stereotype, documenting a year in the lives of four fathers in New York CIty as they attempt to overcome various obstacles.The film is being produced and directed by Emily Abt, whose work has been featured on PBS, MTV and Showtime.

Abt has created a Kickstarter campaign to help finance the completion of the documentary. In just a day backers pledged over $20,000. The fundraising goal is $80,000. The funds will go toward further shooting costs as well as editing.

Check out the compelling trailer for the documentary in the video below.
