A short documentary about rebuilding the broken relationship between a, mostly absent, father and daughter.

For over a decade, I haven’t seen my father. Actually, I haven’t seen him for the majority of my life.

I have tried reaching out to him quite often, though. Despite his addiction and his absenteeism, I finally managed to arrange an appointment with him. I kept on trying.

Because what if, one day, he dies and he is gone forever without knowing how much sorrow I felt due to his absence?

In my graduation documentary “Het zij zo”, I, Lopke, will take you along in the story of my family, and we will visit my father together for the first time in years. It’s the journey of rebuilding the broken relationship between me and my father.
