Dad Got Me the Interview, Do I Have a Shot?

Dear Experts,

I’m going on an interview tomorrow for a job that I know I’m not qualified for. My father knows the owner of the company and agreed to meet with me. Do I have a shot at this job, or is he just being nice? What should I do to convince him I could do the job?
