Plot

The Young Girl and the Monsoon centers around a fraught relationship between father and daughter. Hank, a 39 year-old photo-journalist (Kinney), has agreed to look after his 13 year-old daughter, Constance (Muth), for several weeks while his ex-wife goes on a holiday with her new husband. Hank has compartmentalized his life in such a way that his daughter doesn't know anything about his 26-year-old girlfriend, Erin (Avital). Suddenly Erin wants to marry Hank and have his children, but he can't cope, and drops her.

Just as Hank has a chance of winning a prestigious journalistic award, he finds his private life a little too much to handle. His daughter cannot understand how he can take war photographs and not do anything about what he photographs. She is going through the emotional swings of a growing adolescent and the scenes between Kinney and Muth as father and daughter are seen as the most impressive aspect of the film.
