Who you set out to be isn't always who you become.

Classic Kiwi mystery-thriller starring Matthew Macfadyen (Pride and Prejudice) as a returning war journalist searching for a missing teenage girl (Emily Barclay) he befriended. Based on the novel by Maurice Gee.

"When his father dies, Paul returns to his Central Otago hometown. He strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young girl. Their relationship is frowned upon by and when she disappears, the community holds him responsible. The events that follow force Paul to confront a tragic incident he fled as a youth, and to face dark adult secrets. In My Father's Den was tragically also the last feature for writer-director Brad McGann, who died of cancer in 2007."
