My Heart Belongs To Daddy. A father-daughter black comedy
Sofia, a tough young director, reunites with her father. He has spent a lot of time in prison and his life is marked by addiction. His biggest sorrow is that he lost Sofia. Her biggest hope is that she can help him and repair broken bonds.
My Heart Belongs to Daddy (Røverdatter) is a different kind of father-daughter film about a young director’s attempts to get her criminal dad into rehab. The only way to tackle his chaotic life is with a large dose of dark humour.
