A discussion of how easy, or otherwise, it is to reverse the roles of mother and father in bringing up small children. Are there innate differences, or is it mostly culture and expectation that dictates that mothers should stay at home with young children while husbands go out to work? Many aspects of the debate are covered, some humorously, and we see a family where the roles are reversed, apparently very successfully.
Made in 1985 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless.
