Funny and heartfelt look at the trials and tribulations of a single Mom
16 January 2016 | by (B.C. Canada) – See all my reviews

TIAM is a frequently very funny and always heartfelt look at the problems encountered by a single Mom who is forced to move from the big city back into her parents home in small town America.

With her 3 young daughters (played by the actresses real life daughters) in tow and no prospects for any work (aside from her poor attempts to succeed as a singer/songwriter) she much navigate the difficulties of living with here quirky parents and finding a meaningful job in a very small town.

All of the actors did a fine job - in particular C. Fraser Press in the lead role and her 3 very talented daughters.

Recommended to all lovers of realistic family humor and quirky family dynamics.
