Fifteen years ago, Diana’s father wrote to her from prison. Rediscovering his letters now, she replies to them. Back then, they were the only link she had to her father; today, this is the only way the two can be honest with each other and express their feelings — because nothing was the same after he was released. LOVE, DAD is an intimate film and an attempt to mend a relationship.
