Brendan was an anthropologist and travelled around the world to study foreign cultures and peoples. Right until he met the love of his life in Denmark and became the father of their child. With a non-Danish view of our small country, but with a self-irony that he must have picked up here, his own life becomes the subject of his professional and often funny perspective of being a father. It's a full-time job, since finding work is not so easy when you don't speak Danish. All vanity has long been disposed of, and 'Daddy' is an honest and unsentimental film with a warm heart.
