Mothers

A cavalcade of mothers. A high school student is enjoying her summer until she discovers she is pregnant; a new mother loves her baby son but falls into post partem depression, grieving for her old life; a single mom with three kids manages her money with flair; a rebellious teenager who was kicked out of the house by her mother returns as a young woman hoping for a reconciliation; a mother whose son was shot and killed pleads "put down the gun". A young woman is embarrassed by her "hitchhiker mom"; a mother's lusty sex life embarrasses her grown up son; why would a mother refuse to write a poem for her daughter? "Songs my mother taught me", the story of a mother, a lover, music and regret. An 'empty nest' mother finds her new found silence oppressive and then when the kids 'boomerang' back there are new and annoying noises! A mother 'loses' her own mother to dementia but finds out colourful new details of the old lady's life as a young woman.
