The Mum In Me
What happens to a woman’s mind and sense of identity when she is affected by involuntary childlessness?
The Mum in Me is a touching, brave, and relevant documentary about a taboo topic.
15–25 % of the population are childless. In this film, the director takes us on a challenging, but heartwarming journey with three other childless women. It looks at why the desire to have children is so intense for so many, and how it shapes us as human beings if that desire does not materialize. Sorrow, desperation and isolation can be part of the everyday life for the involuntary childless, but this film is also about reconciliation and newfound zest for life. An earnest and fragile journey into the existential depths of one woman’s mind.
