When Peter Wright's father dies he leaves his entire fortune to Peter's best friend Jack.
Over a few weeks in the summer of 1959, the consequences of the old man's legacy affect three families, Jack's, who has brought up his three children alone since his wife was killed, Wright's solicitor Harry who is trying to rebuild his relationship with his estranged son Guy, and that of Peter himself, whose friendship with Jack is threatened by his father's death and the terrible secrets he has kept since his return from the Japanese POW camps. "The Good Father" explores the nature of fatherhood and the bonds betweens fathers and their children in a gripping story of love, betrayal and adultery.
