High tension father-daughter bonding

Eva is a strong-willed, restless 16-year-old girl who lives with her divorced mother and younger sister and their cat. She is desperate to move in with her father, a bohemian poet leading a wayward lifestyle. But as the fortysomething Martin goes through what could graciously be termed a second adolescence, Eva finds herself caught between the tenderness and sensitivity of teenage life and the ruthlessness of the adult world.

In the foggy reality of adolescence, immersed in a disintegrating world, I wanted to talk about filial love, the transmission of violence, the vertigo of sexual discovery, trying to grasp what makes the border between hate and love so porous.
