The classic image of the family is fundamentally changing. More and more same-sex couples are fulfilling their dream of having their own children. For her documentary film « papa&dada, » the Swiss Italian director Daniela Ambrosoli followed four homosexual couples for several years, filming in the USA, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. The couples, among them the famous ballet dancer John Lam and his husband John Ruggieri, talk openly and touchingly about how the desire for a family developed, the struggles they faced on the way to becoming a happy family, and how everyday life with their children looks today.
