Aina Westlye is the ultimate contemporary, urban teenager. She’s cool, sassy and incredibly confident. At the age of 19 Aina has never met or known her dad - but she doesn’t see what all the fuss about dads is about.  Her theory is that she doesn’t need a dad – in fact she is better off without one! So, Aina goes on a journey to meet a number of different dads to try and find out what they are for and if she’s been missing out!

“Aina’s attempt to discover what all the fuss is about takes her on a funny, poignant journey. It works beautifully because Aina is a walking advert for dadlessness”
