DAD YOU'VE NEVER HAD

Dominika visits her father, whom she has not seen for many years and knows only from letters. Many years ago, conflicted with her mother, he actually renounced his own child. How does he asses his decision now? Can time heal wounds? These few days that they will spend together in his flat cleaning and sorting out memories will not be enough to change anything in their uneasy relationship. The conversations will be difficult and full of emotions. Will the daughter finally manage to ask the most important question?
