Fabio works in a prison as a warden. One day, he consults an inmate in his 60s who has transferred from another prison. While checking the inmate’s personal information, Fabio discovers that the inmate is his father. Actually, this film’s narrative is filled with cliches-a good son that works in the prison despite his family’s opposition, a murderer father who abandoned his family, a family that rejects the father, a son with a love-hate relationship with his father, a memorable one day father-and-son trip, a father with a terminal disease, conflict and making up. Although the characters and events in this film are cliched and melodramatic, the general tone of the film is calm and reserved. The camera captures the actors as they perfectly express the characters’ complicated emotions and inner thoughts. Fabio and his family members’ feelings after the sudden reappearance of his father, and the fathers’ feeling towards his son is realistically depicted. However, this fast-paced film leaves little room for the audience to sympathize with the characters. When tensions are eased and the movie heads to a surprise ending, the film touches the audience despite the limitations of its cliched elements, which makes the film more memorable and lasting.
