Father

A Film by Daniel Torrisi

Synopsis

For David, thirty years old, life is comfortable and unhindered. Especially since his wife is expecting a child. This is not counting the news revealing them that David’s father is dying. Unrelated to him since its 15 years, David’s animosity prevents him to talk about the past and this father he calls “genitor”. But David cannot escape anymore.
