Refrigerator Mother

by Alessandra Hirsch

Directed by Jill Harrison

Westport, Connecticut, 1961. Trapped amidst the expectation of status quo, the emergence of pop psychology, and the dominance of television, young parents Dee and Robert Barton struggle to accept their young daughter’s mysterious detachment. As their carefully built nuclear family begins to shatter, it soon becomes apparent that the only thing more powerful than a mother’s grief is her guilt.
