• Elmo's father talks to his son as he makes
pancakes and tries to hold back tears in
front of the court-mandated social worker,
who was assigned to supervise the few
hours a
week they spend together after
Elmo's addict mother falsely accused him
of being abusive and was awarded full
custody thanks to how U.S. legal system
views fatherhood as essentially worthless.
