“Smart and refreshingly unsentimental … a son’s warm, socially relevant love letter to his mom.” – Caryn James, Hollywood Reporter

After stints as a contributor to CNN and MTV, Sian-Pierre Regis makes his directing debut with this poignant real-life story about his immigrant mother, Rebecca Danigelis. At the age of 75, she’s fired from her lifelong job as a hotel housekeeper. She has scant savings after supporting two sons as a single mother. As his mother struggles to find a new job and faces ageism, Sian-Pierre cares for Rebecca by giving her an unforgettable adventure. Their story was covered in The New York Times article, “My Retirement Plan Is You,” and resonates for a whole generation of adults grappling with how to care for their parents. (Dir. by Sian-Pierre Regis, 2020, USA, 73 mins., Not Rated)
