This film asks as many questions as it answers about the masculine role and about the view that holds that the man should be breadwinner, provider, doer, and represenative of the family to the outside world. Points out that heritage and conditioning die hard. The men portrayed in the film who have decided to be true to their own individuality, rather than to the old male stereotype, struggle to define their new selves. Filmmaker, Christian Blackwood

What's the solution? Friedman uses scenes from schools throughout the United States to demonstrate his belief that lack of freedom of choice in education, due to lack of competition in the education marketplace, creates unequal educational opportunities in the United States
