Question about English (US)

What’s the difference between can’t and wouldn’t in following situation?

Here is this situation.

I have a friend
And his dad has done something terrible to me.
So, I decided to tell him(my friend) what happened.
I would be like “your dad did something horrible to me”
And I think he would be like “what? He would never do that.” or “he could never have done that.” or “why would he do that”?

In this situation, what’s difference?

They seem to mean “there is no possibility”
