Plot Summary: Eliza Welch (Thurman) is like any other mom with two kids, a loving but absent-minded husband (Edwards), and her own mom-blog ("The Bjorn Identity") - yet she's having a day that would challenge even the toughest multi-tasker. Eliza has to throw her daughter's 6th birthday party while a movie crew takes over her block, chase her tireless two-year-old son, navigate playground politics, walk an incontinent dog, juggle a new career opportunity, and realize what is truly valuable in her life... all in one day.
"Motherhood" is a comedy that embraces the joys and heartache of female parenthood. Sometimes hilarious but always touching in its discovery of what one woman loses and gains in choosing to be a mother.
