The Mothers' Triangle

A bitter and riveting portrait. Free of the customary sentiment, it chronicles the unhealthy codependency between mother and daughter.

Eighteen, single, and living at home, Christina is about to have a baby. Her mother, Mary, was herself a sixteen-year-old single mother when Christina was born. Over a period of four years, this raw and unusually intimate documentary follows the two women as they struggle with their respective roles as daughter, mother, and grandmother while doing their best to raise Christina's son, Cristian.
