This documentary dares to untangle to the complicated web of mother/daughter relationships. Fraught with love, anger, compassion, laughter, and joy, these relationships are already intense. Imagine what happens when you throw a wedding into the mix.

Enjoy a candid, revealing, sometimes cringe-worthy but often hilarious look at the ties that bind as three sets of mothers and daughters tell all in this highly-charged film. You'll meet Sabina and Shari, Ruth and Carline, and Pearl, Rhonda, and Heather. Each set of relationships is unique and seeks to examine one of the most complex human connections, and does so with humour, pathos, and love.

    I probably shouldn't have watched this. With two daughters like Shari, I am Sabine. This is a movie, a vision someone had for putting together a story; I didn't foresee myself being in this. I had to cry for my loss.
