"My Mother's Keeper" moves fluidly back and forth between 1914 and the present, taking place within the memories of four generations of women in a show business family.  Looking through the lens of the mother-daughter dynamic, My Mother's Keeper is an examination of our matriarchal inheritance, with all its inherent - and inherited - blessings and curses.  It is a moving, sometimes disturbing, ultimately healing work.
