What do daughters learn from their fathers about men?

Dancing with My Father


An intimate view of marriage, divorce, and how adult love is shaped by what a child learns at home.

Rock sets out to make a point about her father's emotional guardedness, that it was hurtful, that it had a ripple effect which extended into her own marriage. Her fatherís struggle to yield to her questions while the world is, in effect, watching, is the surprise of this family drama. With his help, Rock combines self-analysis and dynastic saga as she traces her family demons from a tiny Jewish community in Slovakia, to the immigrant neighborhoods of Cleveland, Ohio during the early 20th Century. In the process she finally learns to dance with her father and not around him.
