Which mother would want to be faced with such a choice? Hard-working widow Leila needs to send her son away in order to find a place to stay for herself with bus driver Kazem, now that she is about to be fired. Son-Mother, the second feature film of Iranian director Mahnaz Mohammadi, presents a painful dilemma: do you choose for your child or for yourself?
Mahnaz Mohammadi (1975) directed several films on the position of women in Iran, including the documentary Women with no Shadows (2003) and The Soul's Children (2004), which was banned in Iran.
