More Information

Mothers and daughters come together to explore their relationships in this eclectic, fun show! Not all relationships are perfect, but this show unpacks the impact our moms and daughters have on us -- how we're similar, how we're different, how we know each others' buttons and we push them. What happens when we learn our mom is another person and not just a mother?
