    What do daughters learn from their fathers about men? This video is an intimate family view of how adult love is often shaped by what a child learns at home. With camera rolling, filmmaker Marcia Rock sets out to make a point about her father's emotional guardedness—that it was hurtful, that it had a ripple effect which extended into her own marriage. Her father's struggle to meet her halfway and yield to her questions while the world is in effect, watching is the surprise of this family drama.

    With his help, Rock combines self-analysis and dynastic saga as she traces her family demons from a tiny Jewish community in Slovakia, to the immigrant neighborhoods of Cleveland, Ohio, during the early twentieth century. In the process, she finally learns to dance with her father and not around him.
