The Second Mother

The beautiful young daughter of the family housekeeper comes to temporarily stay in the same house as a preening wife, lascivious husband and teenage son- What could possibly go wrong?? 2nd Ma 1

Spinning Reels is pleased to show The Second Mother a comic drama that looks at family divisions- economic, generational, and social. Val has been tending for the employer’s family needs for so long she’s like one of them, or at least part of the furniture. Meanwhile her own daughter has been raised by relatives while relying on the regular money she sends home. All this is about to change when daughter Jessica comes to stay with her mom while writing he college exams. Jessica hasn’t the constraints that her mother has developed and the various complex relationships are opened up to closer, often more humorous examination.
