Dad and I is a personal story framed within a historical and cultural context, spanning three generations. Follow a daughter's quest to understand her dad as he lies unconscious in a hospital bed. From his stories about his early immigrant life, he provides her with the inspiration and impetus to take a leap into the unknown and discover her creative side. Dad and I pauses and ponders on the meaning of life, death, consciousness and unconsciousness. It takes us into a world of dreams, ghosts and spirits, presented as extensions of unresolved issues, embedded deep in our psyche.
