One day the director and her two sisters receive a letter from their father, writing he doesn’t want to see them for 6 months. That letter is now 12 years ago, and their father has since refused to either come back or say goodbye. And when people leave without a proper farewell, you’ll have to construct your own endings. That is what happens in this short film: with miniature figures and paper-made decors different fantasies about a next meeting with an estranged father are played out.
