Ayahku, Dr.G

Sinopsis Filem
Dalam negara di mana pemilikan ganja boleh disabitkan dengan hukuman mati, Siti dibelenggu dengan proses perbicaraan mahkamah yang tiada penghujung serta kerap melawat ayahnya di penjara. Ayahnya yang berusia 60 tahun ditahan kerana disyaki mengambil ganja sebagai ubat untuk merawat penyakit kronik yang dihidapinya. Setiap cabaran yang dihadapi Siti untuk menyelamatkan ayahnya dari tali gantung menambahkan lagi perasaan takut dan resah dalam dirinya. Persoalan yang sering terngiang di kepala hanyalah satu - Adakah dia bakal kehilangan ayahnya?. ‘Ayahku, Dr. G’ menceritakan tentang kisah seorang anak yang bertungkus-lumus mencari keadilan buat ayahnya, mangsa undang-undang yang memandang enteng terhadap kebajikan awam dan menjurus kepada hukuman.

Film Synopsis
In a country where possession of cannabis is punishable with death, Siti finds herself pulled into the unfamiliar world of lengthy legal proceedings and prison visits when her 60 year old father is arrested for allegedly using medical cannabis to treat his chronic illnesses. In her journey to save her father from the death penalty, Siti finds herself succumbing to fear and anxiety as she navigates through her own personal challenges - all the while fearing that she might never see her father again. All in all, ‘Ayahku, Dr. G’ is a story about a daughter’s quest for her father’s justice from a law that puts punishment before public health.
