Today on The Hui, we travel to Japan with Migoto Eria as she embarks on a journey to find her pāpā who went missing 40 years ago.
Letters are the only clues she has to find her father, and Eria has spent her whole life being programmed to not raise her hopes.
It's a search with no guarantee of a fairytale ending.
Monday's episode of The Hui will begin at 4:30pm. Watch the video below. App users - click here.
