"My mind just changed so much when I found out I was dying. I'm just enough of an asshole to be pissed off about that too. How dare dying demand from me that I'm suppose to care about something now I fought that a lot, Lilli But I learned that I do care about things That I am capable of loving things And I have regrets that I had been pretending not to have.
I don't want to hurt Heinricka. I don't want her to care. She shouldn't care. To her I'm nothing- and that's right I just want to tell her one thing. And then get out of her life."
A Very Terrible Father features Mishelle Apalategui, Courtney Blomquist, Chad Sheveland, Natalie Breitmeyer and Jeremy Menekseoglu.
