The moving story of a family coming together at the father's deathbed. As the family reconnects and struggles to find a means to move past old grudges, the younger son steals an ambulance so the father can visit his old haunts. Eventually, the family finds its way to the sea, where the father's nostalgic tales and the importance of family reunion coincide. Our Father is Chile's official submission in the Foreign Language Film category for the 80th Academy Awards (2008). English sub-titles.
