“A young burnout discovers his estranged father is dead, leaving him the responsibility of managing an apartment complex. With hopes of cutting ties, he’s forced to grow up, learning about the dad he never knew through the eclectic tenants.”
My Dead Dad bagged the Jury Award for ‘Best Feature Film’ at the Jacksonville Film Festival and the ‘Best Feature Award’ for Drama at the Santa Clarita International Festival.
Lucas Varela, a young man finds out his father, whom he had last seen ten years ago, passed away from lung cancer, leaving behind an apartment complex in his son’s name.
Getting hit by the responsibility of managing the apartments out of the blue, Lucas intends to sell them. Talking to the tenants of the building, he begins to doubt this decision after learning more about his dad.
Despite lacking the qualifications, Lucas accepts his new duties and tries to solve the tenants’ issues. Meanwhile, Frank helps him deal with his unresolved anger towards his father, encouraging him to open up.
