night, Mother tells the turbulent tale of a mother-daughter relationship rejuvenated by the daughter’s admission she will kill herself that evening.
On an ordinary Saturday night Jessie tells her mother, ‘I’m going to kill myself’. Unfolding in real time over the next 90 minutes, and building like a sonata, a domesticated apocalypse reveals itself in a quiet suburban living room.
As the clock ticks down to the gripping conclusion … is there time for one night of absolute honesty before it’s too late?
The meaning of life is under the microscope in this electrifying fight for survival at the ultimate cost.
‘Simple only in the way an Edward Hopper painting is simple.’
