It starts off on October 13th (my birthday) for Moving Day, Monica’s father is taking them out of the city. However Monica isn’t having it, she gives her father the “silent treatment” that parents know all to well from their children. Having to make new friends, leaving the ones we know for the better behind, but maybe we could always come back to, if the move isn’t to far away from the city.
From the sounds of things, I wanna say that Monica was brought up with a separated family. Having the father have custody of Monica anyways, but it’s not stopping her father from saying goodbye to her mother before heading out to their new place. However, the mother did pass away, from what? Was the relationship strong or abusive as a whole family? Is that why Monica doesn’t seem to get along with her father? Or is it because of the move itself. We’ll have to wait to find out.
