A romantic drama about family, community and love against the odds, "Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls" stars Gabrielle Union ("Running with Scissors," "Bad Boys II," "Deliver Us From Eva") and Idris Elba (HBO's "The Wire," "The Gospel," "Sometimes in April") in writer/director Tyler Perry's follow-up to his number one box office hits "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" and "Madea's Family Reunion." A single father, Monty (Elba) is a garage mechanic who lives in a poor neighborhood and struggles to make ends meet as he raises his three young daughters on his own. But when the courts award custody of his daughters to his corrupt, drug-dealing ex-wife, Monty desperately tries to win them back, enlisting the help of Julia (Union), a beautiful - and hard-nosed – attorney he meets during his short stint as a chauffeur. While Monty and the Ivy-League-educated Julia couldn't be less alike, an unexpected romance blossoms…and it soon begins to feel like true love. But in order for their relationship to survive, the couple must reconcile their two very different worlds – and overcome the forces that threaten to tear Monty's family apart.
