Filmed in a continuous-shot, Mother's Day is an honest portrayal of mental illness. Catch the unbelievable true story of a stalled college grad reconnecting with his mother to find her impoverished, traumatized, and in a mental health crisis. With each biting question, he learns that he, alone, has this one-shot to save her from a potentially deadly decision - but it may be too late.
In 2020, Pan-Am Films had no money, 33 followers on Facebook, and a sudden pandemic. We also had a fire in us to make our debut feature into the best film we possibly could.
We made a choice to learn more, push harder, and volunteer years of work to bring this meaningful story to you.
"If this was a book, I wouldn't believe it."
