How can you be a good dad when you only ever see your daughter for a few days at a time? Is it possible to put your differences aside and come together as a family again when your daughter is getting confirmed and a big party is being thrown in her honour?
It’s late summer, and Endre is alone at the cabin with the boat. Long mornings tripping out to the mouth of the fjord, quiet days living as he pleases. He knows he’ll soon have to return to the city, to the flat in Grønland, to work—and for Emma’s confirmation.
Years have passed since he and Emma’s mother split up. Have they co-parented well enough over the years? Have they managed to give their daughter, Emma, a good life? Can Endre say that he’s done his best as a part-time father? And what awaits Endre now that his daughter is on the cusp of adulthood and soon to start making her own way in life?
Confirmation is raw, tender and exploratory.
