Ten years after breaking all ties with her alcoholic father, a daughter sets out not only to find his grave, but also redemption. Poetically merging archive material, new footage and an immersive soundscape, THE THIRD DAD is a brave journey of memory, self-discovery and a desperate attempt at reconciliation.
