Mother, streaming on Netflix, released on November 3rd, 2020
A story of motherhood that travels through loneliness and tragedy. A single mother with a teenage son finds it hard to survive. Turning towards the use of her body to go through her loneliness, sleeping around with men from all over the place makes her forget reality. Her son, Shuhei on the other hand is sad and finds his mother moving away and away as time goes by. Going through so many mental issues altogether, he comes home one day with a bloodied shirt only to bring the mother-son duo’s entire world down. A crime that he committed, that only he knows why and parenting went so bad that there is no returning after this. A gripping tale of motherhood, inspired by true events that rocked Japan when it happened is streaming now on Netflix.
