Chen Hsi-huang is the eldest son of Li Tien-lu, the renowned Taiwanese glove puppeteer, but his relationship with his father had always been strained. With a production period of ten years, Father not only documents the mission of an 80-year-old elder to inherit this particular art form, it also depicts the unique spirit behind finger puppet masters and their attempts to re-introduce such a performing art back into people's everyday lives.
