Father's Day

Austen, a 12-year-old girl, lives with her single mother in Montreal. Throughout the film, Austen examines whether she is exhibiting the negative traits that experts associate with girls from single parent homes. A surprise visit from her father, who has an impending court date, proves to be unexpectedly emotional for Austen. She decides that she is going to ignore all statistics about the failings of children with one parent and live up to her potential.
