The film explores the psychological dynamics of the nuclear family in a patriarchal society. As the filmmaker describes it: "I wanted to make a film about women in families, especially the mother/daughter and sibling/sister relationships. But I wanted to do so in a provocative way, that is, create a narrative that did not offer solutions or answers but instead motivated the audience to think, and possibly change." "Daughter Rite" combines home movies, a dreamlike voice-over and scripted cinema vérité sequences to extend the language of feminist documentary.
