Synopsis: Mother’s Day is like nothing you’ve ever seen. Drought has struck. Father pushes his wife away from the family dinner of termites. In anger, when mother challenges him, he digs a pit with a brutal purpose, but little does he suspect that Mother can retaliate just as powerfully. Based on an old Shona folk tale and rendered as a musical celebrating a diversity of contemporary Zimbabwean music, Mother’s Day is the newest and most exciting motion picture development to come out of Zimbabwe.
