Tio Papi: aka Uncle Daddy


Limited Theatrical Release – It was a bachelor’s life for hard-working and fun-loving Ray Ray Dominguez (Joey Dedio) who dreams of leaving the barrio for a more carefree existence in Miami. That’s until one day when everything changed — and he became a reluctant “Tio Papi” to his sister’s six children ages six to sixteen. Now, in charge of raising this energetic (and expensive) clan, Ray Ray must make important decision on what life really is about. Combining heart-warming drama with light-hearted comedy, “Tio Papi” is an upbeat story of life’s unexpected surprises and ultimately what matters the most — the love of family.

Dove Review

Uncle Ray Ray gets a life changing experience that he never expected. He has been working to save money to go to Miami but now that all has changed. He needs help with six children and is not sure what he really wants for them. But he soon finds out that family is important and keeping them all together is a challenge.

This is a loving story about family and how life sometimes gives out unforeseen changes, one that makes you step back and look at your life and the goals that you have set. But in the end it all comes down to the importance of keeping a family together even though it may be a struggle.
