Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day is a comedic short film that follows the story of a man who finds himself engaged in a heated argument with a persistent spam caller. As the argument escalates, the man, frustrated, claims that the caller has called his father, leading to a humorous exchange where both parties angrily assert themselves as the father.

Amidst the chaotic argument, the man receives an unexpected call from his wife. She reveals the joyous news that she is pregnant, and he will soon become a father. Overwhelmed by the sudden revelation, the man's demeanor changes, and he becomes pensive, contemplating the responsibilities and significance of fatherhood.

While the man absorbs the news, his friend, who is present during the argument, congratulates him sarcastically and humorously warns him that being a father is not a child's play. The remark sparks laughter between the two friends, highlighting the lighthearted and jovial tone of the film.

The story explores the contrast between a mundane and irritating spam call and the life-altering news of impending fatherhood. Through humor and introspection, the film touches upon the transformative journey of becoming a parent and the emotions that come with it.
