Experiencing Interruptions?

Bunny, Getting to Know Dad

A very strict powerful father provides an oppressive environment for the daughter he raises alone. His little girl needs to hide her moments of dreaming and imagination. One days he finds a mysterious key and discovers a secret. Perhaps her father is not just an overbearing businessman, perhaps he finds time to be a child himself!
