Notes to My Father

Notes to My Father

"Notes To My Father" is a story of love, grief, and reconciliation, between father and daughter.

Flooded by memories of life in an Indian brothel, Ramadevi pens a letter to her father, who unintentionally played a role in his daughter’s trauma.

Despite being close now; they have never spoken about what happened to her.

Through Ramadevi’s touching letter, she reaches out to her father so that they can talk about the unspoken between them. Of their pasts, their pain and her hope that her own young daughter is saved from having a similar fate.

"Notes to My Father" is an Oculus VR for Good project in conjunction with My Choices Foundation.
