In his critically acclaimed coming-of-age film Daddy, Darling, sexploitation auteur Joe Sarno gracefully explores a young girl’s growing sexual fascination with her father, and how it impacts the relationships of those around her. Katja, a naïve and sheltered 19-year-old, lives alone with her widowed father. Jealous of the time he spends with his female friend Svea (Gio Petre, "Wild Strawberries"), Katja plots to sabotage their romance by flaunting her newfound sexual confidence. When her father rejects her advances and marries Svea, Katja begins a sizzling journey of sexual and personal discovery.
