As soon as Gerard Butler's character Dane utters the words, "I'm a headhunter, the purest form of salesman," you can sense just how competitive he is. In A Family Man, he is competing with Alison Brie's character for a top-level position, and as a result, he begins to put his family life on the back burner. You can tell how driven Dane is through lines such as, "This job is a desk, a phone, a chair and your ass," and the declaration, "I'm an American hero."

Things begin to change when Dane takes his oldest son for a run and realises that he is not healthy. One day when he comes back from work, he finds that his son is very sick and they take him to a doctor, only to find out that he has cancer. Veteran actor Anupam Kher plays the doctor.

The trailer ends with two very significant lines. "Every family has its issues, but you only have one family," says one of Dane's relatives to him. Dane's boss eventually asks him if he wants the job, to which he replies, "Everything I need, I already have."

A Family Man has been directed by Mark Williams. Anupam Kher tweeted the trailer of this film on 12 March, 2017.
