Making “Talking with my Dad:” meet Frankie

Frankie sits at the center of Talking with My Dad.

A relaxing Saturday afternoon he is spending with his family gets interrupted by an urgent call from his doctor. That call sets off a chain of events Frankie is finding it incredibly difficult to believe.

But regardless of how he feels, his life is about to change forever.

Frankie grew up on the hard-scrabble streets of Brooklyn, N.Y. but was rescued from a potential life off crime by a high school that took him of the streets and set him on the road to suburban, middle class life.

He’s had his bumps along the way, but Frankie has reached a place where he is finally feeling in control of his life, and feeling that, maybe, just maybe, life can start being good for him.

All that is about to change.
