Mother – a doctor and practicing Catholic. Daughter – an agnostic, whose children were born through in vitro fertilization opposed by the Church.

Though they’re bound by sincere feelings, their ideological differences leave the mother torn between the love for her daughter and grandchildren and Church dogma, while the daughter needs her mother’s unconditional acceptance.
