High atop a building in Manhattan, hip and happy single gal, Rigby Gray, peeks into the apartments and lives of her neighbors… hiding safely behind her long camera lens… unaware her life is about to become changed forever.
Rigby’s snapshots of people’s lives come to life in the intersecting stories of different mother and child relationships, in the colorful variety of shapes they can take. We learn about how sisters and strangers, roommates and lovers, and even nightmare mothers-in-law, can be the most loving of maternal figures. When an unlikely and unexpected pregnancy forces Rigby to turn the lens inward and watch the upheaval it’s reeking on her own life… a life she is reluctant to change… it is these stories that help with her own most important decision, and to embrace the exhilarating journey of new life as she learns what it is to be a mother, and a daughter to her own.
‘Mothers and Daughters’ is a celebration of the unparalleled love between mothers and their children, the myriad of ways we connect in our modern day world, even when we are at times physically distant, and explores the most important foundational relationship in our lives – the one with our mother. It is a trip through the human need to join life and create family even with life’s inconvenient circumstances. It takes nine months to become a mother, yet a moment to love for a lifetime.
