After 30 years of struggling with the effects of growing up fatherless, filmmaker John Finch began a journey to come to terms with the impact of the incredible void he was only beginning to recognize, and the ways in which it was playing out in his own role as a dad to three young daughters. In 2010, John started a journey to find forgiveness for his father, who committed suicide when John was only eleven years old. Recognizing the need to find peace, healing and direction as a man, husband, and father, John poured himself into The Father Effect documentary, taking a hard look into his own father’s life and struggles, and interviewing countless others who shared insight into the father wound and the life-changing power of forgiveness. Through the story of his own life, and the many stories of others, John shares with his viewers the overwhelming impact fathers have on their children, the power and life-change of forgiveness for fathers who did not get it all right, and inspiration and insight for children and fathers everywhere who need to be encouraged and inspired.
