THE ORIGIN OF TROUBLE

THE ORIGIN OF TROUBLE

A curious daughter questions her father about his absence, by interviewing him and her whole family she tries to create a new understanding.

What causes a father to be absent and what are the consequences of his absence? And why was it so hard for John Pope to be involved in his daughter’s life?

Through archive-material and family stories the director of The Origin of Trouble puts the pieces of her past together. The result is a witty, emotional story about family, love, hope and losses.
