When a child is born with rare diseases, it is usually the father who abandons the family.
But not the six dads in this film – Wu, Yung, Cheng, Li, Pan and Ouyang. Coming from different backgrounds, they do their best to care for their children while making a living to support the whole family. Needing an outlet to relieve the pressure, they turn to music and form a rock band called “Sleepy Dads,” implying they have long been sleep-deprived for attending to their kids. With an average age of 52, they aim to hit the stage of the highly competitive Sea Music Festival, which is as difficult as Apollo missions to the moon. Nonetheless, these fathers show no fear because their children’s happiness is their greatest mission of all.
