Innocent or guilty. He was still her Father.

A man well-settled into the Autumn of his life, Joe Mueller (Oscar® nominee Max von Sydow, The Exorcist) is lovingly supported by his daughter Anne (Carol Drinkwater, All Creatures Great And Small) and her husband Bobby (Steve Jacobs, Blue Murder). They are a close-knit family ill-prepared for the dark secrets that are about to be uncovered.

Tracked down by Holocaust survuvor Iya Zetnick (AFI Award winner Julia Blake, Travelling North) Joe is soon exposed as a concentration camp functionary responsible for murdering her family back in Lithuania. Branded a war criminal and subject to all manner of speculation and charge, Joe faces a heart wrenching ordeal – forgoing his once idyllic existence for a life of turmoil and paranoia, with his family his only refuge. But when Anne discovers the extent of her father’s suspicious past, she is unwittingly torn between the devastating truth and her loyalty to family.

In the tradition of Music Box and The Reader, winner of two AFI Awards, Father explores a universal story that lurks deep in the shadow of the past to forever haunt our perception of history.
