Every story has two sides. At least, as we can witness with this one. While I thought some things were obvious (bad day at work and so forth), it is not trying to be to on the nose. Two women, two different lives, but similar goals. It's about having a family, about surviving, working on making life better.
The acting is more than decent, but there are downfalls with the clichés and everything that is going on. You can understand character motivation most of the time, even if the ending may be too much for some. You'll either like it or you'll kind of hate it. But life can be tough sometimes and it shows here how that plays out
