This touching portrait follows two mothers whose stories converge in an eldercare facility in Northern Thailand—Pomm, a Thai woman devoted to her patients but heartbroken that she’s not around for her own children, and Maya, a Swiss grandmother suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s. Profoundly intimate and complex, MOTHER presents a deeply layered account of caring for those you love, and those you grow to love.
“A radical achievement: a love letter to loss, sacrifice and yearning.”
