Call Mom!

Parents wait their entire lives for their children to say “Thank you!” and children, in turn, wait for an “I’m sorry!” This emotional deadlock is the premise of the comedy Call Mom! Niki is 35 but lives her life like a 25-year-old. Despite (or perhaps just because of) her mother worrying about her eternity-long teenage phase, Niki refuses to take any major life choices or start any deeper relationships. Niki and her mother can hardly coexist before the scuffle rolls in. As if they were deadly enemies, every word is interpreted, every gesture as a threat or an insult. At the same time, they want nothing more than to be able to communicate with each other. All of a sudden Niki is forced to come to grips with all of her relationships and past choices in life at the same time.
