Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters portrays the story of Steve, a father of three who is determined to keep his daughters. But can he learn to relinquish control and let their destiny in God’s hands?
Real-life married couples Robyn Lively (9-1-1: Lone Star) and Bart Johnson (High School Musical) star in the new film, as do Maria Canals-Barrera (Wizards of Waverly Place) and David Barrera (Killing It). Brandon Prado (Narcos: Mexico), Carrie Wampler (Big Little Lies), Kayla DiVenere (Love, Victor), and Arden Myrin round out the cast (Insatiable).
“I’m so excited for people to see Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters,” said co-star Robyn Lively, “Bart and I had such a wonderful experience working together for the first time as a married couple. Our real-life roles as parents have been the most important and rewarding of all! We cherish the special bond that we have with our own kids and hope that this film is a sweet reminder of what matters most in life, family,” she continued.
Robyn’s husband and co-star Bart echoed those sentiments: “When I read this script, I thought; ‘This is my life.’ With all the good times, struggles, coaching my kids’ soccer teams and tripping through the wires trying to be the best father I can be. I’ll have my kids under my roof for just a small window of time. I remind myself that every day and I do my best to not take that for granted. Robyn and I joke about how much we miss them and we aren’t even empty nesters yet.”
Robyn and Bart play Connie and Steve, parents to Abby, Zoey and Bridget in the movie. Abby surprises both her parents when she returns from a mission trip and announces she’s engaged. Can Steve let go of the big dreams he had for her and support her in this new adventure?
“Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters communicates the profound transformation that occurs deep within a father when he realizes, perhaps for the first time, how critical he is to his daughter’s happiness and success,” said author Dr. Meg Meeker. “It counters everything a father is taught about his influence on his daughter: his inability to understand her, his limitations in impacting her happiness and his ineffectiveness in raising her to be strong. This movie will turn any father’s insecurity into power. This movie isn’t just a heartwarming story. It is a cry from every daughter’s heart to her father, to give her the power only he can give to help her become an extraordinary woman,” Dr. Meeker continued
