What happens when mom has the big job and dad stays home with the kids?

You have The Big Flip.

Over 18 months and 5 cities—Portland, D.C., Nashville, Seattle and L.A.—this timely documentary follows four American families as they navigate the trials and triumphs of at-home fatherhood and mothers as main breadwinners. We journey with each family as they tackle major life changes—a birth, a lay-off, a cross-country move, and a mid-life crisis.
In a world where the majority of Americans still believe kids are better off when mom stays home, and that a good father should work hard to provide for his family, how will these families fare? Will resentments and doubt fester? Will love endure?
