Father is a story of a man who has his children taken away from him because of poverty. It is a story about a loser, an outcast, a humiliated man who sets off on foot from his village in the south of Serbia to the capital, from one end of the country to the other, out of protest, dignity and despair, to make a point about himself and others, ultimately becoming a hero.

I wanted the film to start as a realistic drama about a bureaucratic and corrupt society, and then slowly turn into a film about a man who, through the mythic journey he embarks on as a loser and an outcast, turns into a hero. Starting as a social drama, the film becomes a fairy tale.
