Daddy’s Girl is a story about rebellion, growing up, and letting go. The symbiotic relationship between a Turkish father, Cengiz, living in Finland, and his 26-year-old half-Finnish daughter, Melisa, begins to deteriorate when Melisa moves to Turkey to start a life of her own. Cengiz’ inability to deal with Melisa breaking free starts a chain of ambivalent events. A funny, yet somewhat tragic European family tale.
