Not to be anal, but how does this scene impact on the recovery of the daughter? If you're taking the viewer here, why? I'm not saying the scene will write itself, I'm just saying there are clues in to how this scene pans out based on the impacts you intend it to have on the characters in later scenes.
How does the father's 'pushing back' affect the story of the recovery of the daughter? I'm not asking you to tell me, I'm just suggesting you consider it when making decisions.
Also I think you need some rest because you are 'can can' ing me.
