Synopsis: Daughter longs for her father’s love, but he will not show it. She hides her pain and closes herself inside her own imagination, where she imagines her father’s affection and relives the few precious moments where she truly felt loved. As an adult, devastating circumstances force the daughter to struggle against any resentment that she holds against her father, and to try to understand and forgive him before it is too late.
