Based on real events, PAPA is a dramatic short film that focuses on Pepe, the youngest son of African immigrants who is caught between the challenge of defining himself in a new culture, and the struggle of coming of age in a home dominated by a father who runs the household with an iron fist. An explosive confrontation forces Papa (played by renowned Ivorian actor Souleymane Sy Savane, the Independent Spirit Award-nominated star of Goodbye Solo) to reconsider his abusive ways or risk losing his entire family.
