Shot in the Dark | 2006
Before his success as an actor, Adrian Grenier began work on this personal documentary about tracking down his distant father. Raised in New York City by his mother, Karesse, he grew up knowing little about his biological father. Just before his twenty-third birthday, Adrian resolves to reconnect. He begins his journey at Yankee Stadium on Father's Day, asking men the meaning of fatherhood and what it means to grow up without a dad. He interviews his mother and learns things he never knew about her past. Then he travels with a buddy to his father's home state of Ohio for a family visit full of surprises.
