Mother and Milk describes the mental process of becoming a parent imagined as a catastrophe film. When the baby is born the new mother has to give up the life she knew. A flood of breast milk covers everything her home, work, friends, relationship and a good night’s sleep. Only after realising she is a part of the eternal chain of generations, Mother is able to accept the situation and start living her new life in the family. The film’s humour is sharp but warm, and the disaster turns into a newly found acceptance of the change.
