But while he’s waiting, the doorbell rings and it’s his ex-girlfriend. She’s carrying a baby – his baby.
Dante agrees to look after the baby for an hour or two. Then his ex doesn’t come back, and Dante’s plans have to change. With the help of his father and brother, Dante must learn how to be a single parent.
A gripping and original story about love, relationships and growing up the hard way.
