Alan and Rob are an older married couple with a three-year-old daughter and a life they fought decades to be allowed to lead. But Alan has begun to feel an attraction to a younger gay dad; his closest straight friend's marriage is disintegrating before his eyes; and his daughter Nicola seems to prefer Rob, who's taken to parenting without any of Alan's insecurities.
In the course of one school year, three couples struggle with what it means to be married with children at this head-spinning cultural moment. By turns comic and serious, Dada Woof Papa Hot asks the question: are the challenges of gay dads the same as those of straight dads? Or is there something fundamentally different about being a gay father? And what about that nagging feeling that in assimilating to straight culture, something worth saving has been lost?
