Father explores the relationship of a dad and son who haven’t been in touch in the last years. While he tries to reconnect with his son in the present, he reflects with his girlfriend on the past.

A moving, delicate and intimate portrait of a father and son in a rare moment, to share, express emotions and learn about each other. The history and backstory unfold via conversations with a lover, revealing a softness and desire to forget the past and live in the moment. The director, Isabel Lamberti, enables the viewer to connect with the characters and their complex, yet tender, relationship without judgement.
