Slovak Short Cinema

The question of life and death is an ineffable phrase, almost impossibe to grasp. People face it every second and it is always painful for someone. Even more, if you are a parent and you outlive your own child. Or if it is likely to happen. The film Otec (Father) is a spiritual drama about an ordinary man, who is losing his only child. The story tells us about useless conflicts in our lives, and shows the depth of human soul.
