Pass The Bar Synopsis 

Bar Daddy tells the story of ALFRED JENKINS who In 1972 while on jury duty, Jenkins, then 40, was suddenly inspired by the idea of being a lawyer. Even though he was only a few classes shy of getting his master's degree in mathematics from USC, he chucked his career and enrolled at L.A.'s Loyola Law School. Al passed the Bar on his first try however he did not like the fact that his peers did not also pass thus his tutoring sessions began and now 45 years and thousands of students later he is still at it.

The intent of this feature length documentary is to tell the story of a man that has dedicated his life to helping others live their purpose. The film will profile Al as he prepares his students for the toughest test of their lives.
