In “Mother’s Day,” interwoven stories of what it is to be a mom are tied
together through the story of hip and happy single gal Rigby Gray, a
rock
photographer who is riding a career high when an unlikely and
unexpected pregnancy forces her to turn her lens inward. As Rigby slowly
comes to terms with
what it might mean to change her life forever, she discovers with
fresh eyes her own relationship with her estranged mother and, through a
series of
photographs documenting motherhood in all its varieties, she
considers what it means to be maternal at all.

explores the most important foundational relationship in our lives – the one with our mother.
