Dad You've Never Had

  • Poland
Audio Tracks 

A subtly and sensitively told story of a daughter’s complicated relationship with her father. She sets off on a journey to see the man who abandoned her in the past. Her father lets her into his flat and tries to answer her questions. Together, they pore over the letters they have written to each other over the years. She cleans his flat and sets both her father’s world and her own relationship with him in order. A difficult confrontation arises between them. This is a film about a daughter’s profound longing for her father and the acceptance of the fact that it is longing which will never be appeased.
