Synopsis

Present day. Rural Australia, Oliver Finch lives a quiet life with his father, his wife, his daughter & a duck. When his old friend Christian Neilson returns home after 16 years absence, he unearths a long kept family secret that threatens to shatter Oliver’s world. A contemporary portrait of family dysfunction, deception & denial, The Daughter is a potent drama about return. The return to the site of trauma, the return to memories you wish you’d never created, the return to truth in all its consequences.
