Many children with estranged parents would erase everything to acknowledge their relationships. In My Dead Dead, one son seeks to rid of his inheritance from his estranged deceased father but ended up learning more about his parent in the apartment complex.

The film stars Pedro Correa, Raymond Cruz, Courtney Dietz, Simon Rex, Booboo Stewart, Chris Pontius, and Steven Bauer. Fabio Frey directed the movie from the screenplay written by Correa and Frey.

Here’s the full synopsis for My Dead Dad:

In this charming coming-of-age drama, young burnout Lucas (Pedro Correa) is notified that his estranged father has passed away. Relieved to never have to hear about him again, Lucas learns that his father left him the responsibility of managing an apartment complex in Los Angeles. Determined to sell off the complex without a second thought, Lucas meets the eclectic tenants and soon discovers his father was a different man than the one he knew.
