The family of Clarice Gargard, born in 1988, comes from Liberia. In DADDY AND THE WARLORD, the young journalist asks about her father’s involvement in the war crimes of the convicted rebel and ex-president of Liberia, Charles Taylor. For Gargard her father was an idealist and role model. But was he really interested in rebuilding his country, or was he corrupting himself with money, fame, and power? The story unfolds slowly - and Clarice increasingly loses herself in the search for her own truth, while her father’s story turns out to be more complex and harder than ever thought.
