This father lies to his daughter every single day saying that they are not poor, he is happy, he has a job. The truth is he is struggling every day to put food in their mouth.
He lies because he loves his daughter and he does not want to kill the dreams that are deep down inside of her. Like a good father, he will not allow the disappointments of life to squash the creativity and drive that his little girl has. I could barely watch this one without crying.
