True Mothers (Naomi Kawase)

Filmmaker Naomi Kawase returns with another deeply sensitive portrayal of a family drama. Her latest work follows a couple who receive a call from a woman claiming to be the biological mother of their adopted child and asking for money. Questions mount about motherhood. Which woman can pretend to be a "truer" mother: the one who gave birth or the one who has raised the child as her own?
