Sometimes you find what you're looking for...sometimes you find more.
"MOM" is the story of a young man named Try who hires a rag tag group of Brooklyn detectives to help him find his biological mother. What he doesn't expect is this unorthodox brand of familial detection to ensue the existential journey of a lifetime. Funny, poignant and sincere MOM raises many questions and serves as no answer in regards to some of ways in which we see ourselves and the idea of family. No two viewers will leave the theater having thought they saw the same film.

About the Production:
"Having written extensively on the subject of family, Lonely Christopher developed a cinematic concept through which to specifically investigate adoption and non-traditional family constructs. This is a film about loss and longing; and how those emotions play out through different types of relationships (and our expectations for them)." -- Jakob Abrams
