Last year, Michael's wife walked out on him, leaving him with their four children. Now divorced and with legal custody he's a full-time single dad intent on keeping his family together. With help from his parents and careful budgeting, Michael has paid off the family's back rent and outstanding utility bills. Money is tight and home haircuts are mandatory. So dad moves in with the trimmer to tidy up Brady's hair.
