Competition 05: Father's Saying

Love, Dad

Nominees and Awards


A short film about ties and gaps between a child and a parent. A daughter rediscovers love letters her dad used to write her from prison. That love seems to be gone now. She decides to write back in hopes of finding their connection again. She puts in writing what could not be said: blaming him for their family’s break-up but also trying to understand.
