A CERTAIN MOTHER interweaves the stories of five women from across Australia as they
navigate the challenges of parenthood - offering an intimate look into social issues, and a snapshot of motherhood today.
From the Dandenong Ranges to Sydney’s
northern beaches, from rural pastures to an inner city flat -
a single day unfolds for five women in the throes of motherhood. Whilst
tending to the relentless demands of the day, they are determined to
rise above the struggles that parenthood had brought close to them. Whether faced
with disability, or their own anxieties, a weight-preoccupied teen or
the biases of others, they are forced to deconstruct and redefine some
of our culture’s most sacred ideals.
