In a Perfect World

What does it mean to be a man raised by a single mother, without the presence of the father? Drawing from the director’s own relationship with her son, this probing cinematic essay examining one of society’s major ailments, features interviews with men of diverse backgrounds and ages, sharing painfully personal anecdotes in the wake of emotionally turbulent and unsettling periods of their youth.
