What happens when everyman Calder Boyd starts to lactate? The Manhattanite becomes a media cause célèbre nicknamed the Milkman and old and new problems spill forth. The biracial son of a former star NBA player and a Norwegian artist, Calder copes with his strained marriage, losing his copywriting job at a boutique ad agency, a male-empowerment espousing mailman and a porn-star performance artist who wants to exploit him. He also deals with his late father’s legacy and his wife’s past indiscretion—all while breastfeeding their newborn daughter. Calder eventually becomes a pawn in the battle between a feminist organization and a militant men’s society as he tries to become a better husband and man. The Fourth Estate, sex, race, art, love, memory, marriage and family converge during the snowiest winter on record in this absurdist commentary on contemporary American fatherhood.
