Mother’s Little Helpers is an honest and funny exploration of the limits of familial forgiveness as four siblings reconnect to care for their dying mother.

When ageing rock’n’roll photographer Joy Pride is diagnosed with stage-four lung cancer, her estranged adult children hesitantly gather for her final days wary it is another of their mother’s schemes. Wanting to reconnect with her friends before her death, Joy asks her children to help throw her one final party. As dormant resentments and secrets arise, the Pride siblings must confront the complexities of past and present in this deft American indie.
