Storyline:

The Boys Are Back is a confessional tale of fatherhood. It follows a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented sportswriter who, in the wake of his wife’s death, finds himself in a sudden, stultifying state of single parenthood. Joe Warr throws himself into the only child-rearing philosophy he thinks has a shot at bringing joy back into their lives: “just says yes.” Raising two boys – a curious six year-old and a rebel teen from a previous marriage — in a household devoid of feminine influence, and with a lack of rules, life becomes exuberant, instinctual, reckless… and on the constant verge of disaster. The three multi-generational boys of the Warr household, father and sons alike, must each find their own way, however tenuous, to grow up.
