| Fighting
Life is a ... fight? I guess so, better than the other "b-word" comparison maybe. In this case it really captures what this is about. A girl that has father issues and also anger issues. Why not combine both and "fight" them? So that is what is happening here and it really hits home with the drama and the acting is really good too (fighting also).

This may offend some people, especially if you don't feel the relationship between her and her father. But it is painted nicely and it doesn't try easy ways out. It's not like you are going to get something you yearned for. Something a let's say more cliche movie might have done. So you may like this approach and ultimately (re)solution this aims for, or you may hate it for not being the way you would like it to be ... hopefully you'll enjoy it for what it is! And take the message to heart! Fight for what you believe in
