Synopsis - The Good Father

‘The Good Father’ is a warm, tender and funny love story about two people from different social backgrounds. Jane, a lawyer, and Tim, a painter who meet at a New Year’s Eve party and reluctantly attempt a relationship after she becomes pregnant.

Sarcastic, resentful and still trying to please her parents, Jane would prefer to go it alone but Tim’s open-hearted honesty and persistence gradually wears her down. Estranged from his own father he is desperate to realise a dream he thought beyond him, to be a good father.

As resistance turns to love, they begin to glimpse a bright future together, but Jane carries a secret that threatens to tear them apart.
