Will He Convert You or Con You? John Ortiz and Stefania LaVie Owen on Netflix Messiah Series

Father-daughter relationships may not be shown quite as much on-screen as say father-son or mother-daughter but with the specific duo played by John Ortiz and Stefania LaVie Owen, we get to see the complexity through the teen years as well as the deep love.
