Documentarian Jennifer Siebel Newsom sets out to discover how the culture stereotypes of masculinity will affect her son.
After Siebel Newsom had her son, Hunter, she asked her self: “who will he become as an adult man? A sensitive and compassionate human being? Or a depressed lonely and disconnected portrayal of masculinity?”
