Starring Peter Paige, Kathy Najimy, Anthony Clark, Jim Ortlieb with Gabrielle Union and Melanie Lynskey. Portland-based artist Paul Johnson (Peter Paige), who happens to be gay, returns from his telemarketing job one day to some very distressing news - his closest friends, the Fabers, are moving to Japan, and they're taking Paul's two year-old godson Morgan with them. Shifting into serious denial mode, Paul misses their final departure, but ultimately faces the truth that the Fabers are gone and aren't coming back .When Paul's friend Russell (Anthony Clark) convinces him to “get back out in the world,” Paul ventures out to play with some kids at the local playground. Inspired to find creative ways to maintain the youthful exuberance he feels, Paul begins to explore every opportunity that might afford him contact with children: working in a toy store, babysitting, advertising himself as a nanny (aka "manny"), even considering adoption. Watching Paul's natural, playful chemistry with the children, one local mother, Maggie Butler (Kathy Najimy), wonders who this amazing "Super Dad" is. Upon further investigation, she determines that maybe Paul is up to no good and decides to rally her neighbors to take action.
