A tender documentary about a Thai mother caring for Westerners afflicted by Alzheimer's. In a small village in Thailand, Pomm takes care of Europeans with Alzheimer’s. Separated from her children, she helps Elisabeth during the final stages of her life, as a new patient arrives from Switzerland.
Pomm has sacrificed being close to her children in order to earn a better living, meanwhile in Switzerland a family prepares to say goodbye to their mother; a woman who has developed Alzheimer’s in her 50s. Mother is an intimate and moving observation, allowing us to explore the struggles and expectations of motherhood and the frustrations of being unable to care for our loved ones.
"A radical achievement" ★★★★★ The Guardian
