He wrote to her, about her, and for her.


Fathers & Daughters
A Pulitzer-winning novelist finds himself fighting against the world when a fatal car accident leaves him to raise his 5-year-old daughter, all on his own. Overcome with guilt from the loss of his wife, he struggles with the daily routine of raising a child compounded by his overbearing relatives intent on taking her away from him. As we weave back and forth between the 1980s, and present day, we come to learn how the now 30-year-old daughter battles the demons that stemmed from her troubled childhood and simultaneously watch how the father fights to hold on to the thing he loves most: his daughter, at the cost of his fortune, sanity, and ultimately even his own life. The critics don’t think this is going to be winning any Oscars.
