Synopsis My father is an ogre

Michael grew up not knowing his father, a man whom everyone called “the Ogre”. He has heard nothing from him for many years. Now grown up, he is visited by a man who shared a prison cell with his father and who has a letter from him. Thus, Michael discovers the previously unknown story of a solitary Ogre with a dark past, who has always kept a place for his beloved son in his heart. He finds out that thanks to that love, his father never stopped being human.
