Mortimer J. Snow, Ph.D. is a renowned psychologist, author and university professor with a beautiful wife and two healthy children. While in the throes of a mid-life crisis, he makes the drastic choice to follow the advice he’s been doling out for years and live as his authentic self. During his journey, he discovers whether pursuing a dream is worth risking everything and how culture shapes our definition of sanity. The Deadbeat Dad provides an intimate glimpse into a man, who by all outside standards is very successful, but inwardly feels empty and has a desperate need to save himself from society’s view of how life should be lived.
