In less than a year, filmmaker Judith Helfand (Cooked: Survival by Zip Code, DOC NYC 2018) goes through two major life moments: losing her beloved mother, Florence, and becoming a mom herself. As Judith prepares to welcome her adopted daughter, Theo, into her life, she must deal with literal and figurative “stuff:” endless boxes of her parents’ belongings, the promise she made to Florence to lose weight, reckoning with first-time motherhood at the age of 50, and moving on without her mother to help guide her.

Watch an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Director Judith Helfand.
