MOTHER AND MILK

A flood of breast milk covers everything - her home, work, friends, relationship and a good night’s sleep. Only after realizing she is a part of the eternal chain of generations, Mother is able to accept the situation and start living her new life in the family. The film’s humour is sharp but warm, and the disaster turns into a newly found acceptance of the change.
