The (Dead Mothers) Club (2014) - Plot Summary Poster

Plot Summary

  • The Club tells the story of three women - a southern artist reinventing herself after her mother's sudden death; a young mother living in a new country, discovering her genetic fate and a high-school senior seeking independence- all of whom lost their mothers during adolescence. Their journeys reveal how coming of age without their mothers has and continues to play a role in their lives. Structured around a series of 'dialogues' that focus on various themes threading their stories together, these ruminations allow for heart-breaking and at times humorous insight into how ultimately one's past can dictate their future. From intricate relationships with adopted mother figures, the cyclical nature of grief to their own mortality, the women of The Club provoke thoughts surrounding the innate and complicated nature of the mother/daughter relationship, even in its absence...
