When Nicholas is born 100 days early, he weighs only one pound and faces impossible odds for survival. As he struggles for life, so struggle his two mothers: out lesbian filmmaker Nicole Conn (Elena Undone, A Perfect Ending) and political activist Gwen Baba, to keep their family from disintegrating under the unrelenting stress and chaos of hospitals, emergency medical crises and a crushing blow to trust.
The winner of 12 Best Documentary awards at film festivals across the country, little man explores the core of the human spirit as a family realizes that they are capable of enduring what they never thought possible.
