Several of Netflix’s recent Sundance pickups are set to debut on Netflix over the summer, and one of the most anticipated from our list is Daughters, a documentary from Natalie Rae and Angela Patton.

The premise of the doc follows four young girls preparing for a special Daddy-Daughter Dance with their incarcerated fathers as part of a unique fatherhood program in a Washington, D.C., jail.

The doc received strong reviews earlier this year, including a glowing review from Tomris Laffly, who wrote, “It’s hard to imagine a sharper critique of our dehumanizing prison system than this bighearted, deeply empathetic tearjerker by Angela Patton and Natalie Rae.”
