FNF Scotland in teenage father

This short film shows how a child of teenage parents finally rediscovered her father.

Margaret was raised by her maternal grandparents and never knew her dad.

When her grandparents died, Margaret says she developed an eating disorder that soon "spiralled out of control".

Her dad, Jim, started messaging her and eventually, they met up.

"Because he was looking in from the outside, he could see I was really ill," Margaret said.

Jim helped her access treatment and counselling, and Margaret says without her dad, "I wouldn't still be here".
