Twenty-two-year old Steven Playford recounts what it was like to grow up without his biological mother.

Director/producer: Jesse McCracken

Filmmaker’s statement

This film was made over a couple days in the spring of 2013 with Steven. He lived with my family for a number of years and has become my brother, and we made this together out of some recorded conversations we had about his life.

I made it with the intention of bringing a lot of unspoken things out in to the open between us and as a type of therapy.
