People say you can’t go home anymore. That could be the case for Max (Brian Cox) when he returns to his daughter’s house after an extended prison sentence in the new drama The Prisoner’s Daughter. Emotions run high as father and daughter reconnect and old wounds open. Boundaries risk crossing as Max tries to make up for lost time. In Vertical’s The Prisoner’s Daughter trailer, we find out that Beckinsale and Cox are in no danger as they navigate a damaged relationship. Can Max repair the damage before time runs out?

Catherine Hardwick (Afternoon, Thirteen, Mafia Mama) directs from a script by Mark Bacci (The Woods, Five Hours South, True Detective). The Prisoner’s Daughter “a dark, disturbing thriller that follows Max (Brian Cox) who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and is granted a pardon after 12 years in prison on the condition that he lives with his daughter, Maxine (Kate Beckinsale)” reads the film’s official synopsis. “As a single mother desperate for an income to raise her only son, Ezra (Christopher Convery), she reluctantly agrees but has no interest in settling down or letting Max have a relationship to her son. To make matters worse, Maxine also has to contend with Ezra’s father, Tyler (Tyson Ritter), an abusive addict who wants more control over his son’s life. As Max seeks one last chance to redeem himself in her eyes, they must contend with his dark, violent past as it returns to haunt them all.”
