Mothering can be difficult at the best of times but imagine trying to raise your children from prison. From the director of A Leap of Faith comes this compelling documentary that follows five extraordinary women incarcerated at New York's only maximum security prison, Bedford Hills Correctional Facility. While trying to maintain strong relationships with their children, nurture them, guide them and play central roles in their lives, these women simultaneously face the day-to-day struggle of life behind bars. The women are supported by a revolutionary on-site daycare created by Sister Elaine, who, by promoting opportunities for incarcerated women to see their children, has created a space for positive change in the least likely of settings. Mothers of Bedford is a deeply moving story about these women, their journey and what it means to be a mother.
