Summary A personal and intimate documentary about a young filmmaker coming of age in extraordinary circumstances. It follows the complicated relationship between director Lena Macdonald and her mother, who was once a filmmaker herself at the CBC, but ended up homeless, crack-addicted and on the streets. For ten years Lena filmed in the cold, hard streets of Toronto's inner city and her story is raw, honest and unforgettable. MOM AND ME is about addiction, prostitution and despair but it is also a story about family, the power of hope and the tenacity of love
