What happens in a family if Mum is taken away for a holiday and Dad is required to play his role without any outside help?
Following a request for help from an exasperated mother, the producers of the programme take the delighted women to a luxurious spa hotel, and for five days, follows the dad in his natural environment, left alone with his children.
Dad will have to organise himself to do all the things he has never done before on his own, from simply accompanying his children to school to homework at night, from shopping at the discount supermarket to telling a good-night story, from the obligatory shower to a crazy shopping trip for clothes in a mall on Saturday afternoon.
