When gay, Portland-based artist Paul Johnson (Peter Paige), gets back from work one day he discovers that his closest friends, the Fabers, are moving to Japan. Paul is greatly distressed at this news as he will sadly miss seeing their two year-old son Morgan who he is godfather to.

Paul's friend Russell (Anthony Clark) encourages him to move on so Paul starts playing with some kids at the local playground. Realizing how much he is missing contact with children he starts working in a toy store, babysitting, advertising himself as a nanny (aka "manny") and even thinks seriously of adoption.

Watching Paul's natural, playful chemistry with the children, one local mother, Maggie Butler (Kathy Najimy), wonders who this amazing "Super Dad" is. However upon further investigation, she comes to the conclusion that maybe Paul is up to no good and decides to rally her neighbors to take action.

Thus begins a comic clash of suspicion, fear, and misunderstanding in this "not-quite-black" comedy. Truly, the suburbs are about to get hysterical.

A dark, wicked comedy marks the directorial debut of Peter Paige (Showtime's QUEER AS FOLK).
