ABOUT SINS OF THE MOTHER

Based on author Carleen Brice's moving novel, Orange Mint and Honey, Sins of the Mother features Jill Scott (The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) as reformed alcoholic Nona, Nicole Beharie (American Violet) as her daughter Shay and Mimi Rogers (The Door in the Floor) as Nona's sponsor Lois. Graduate student Shay Dixon (Beharie) reaches a crossroad in her life when she finds herself broke, burned out and unable to cope with the stress of school. With nowhere else to go, she embarks on a journey home to Tacoma, Washington, to face her abusive, alcoholic, estranged mother, Nona (Scott). When she returns home, Shay finds Nona living life as a recovered alcoholic, with a new daughter and completely transformed. Thrown by her mother's new path, Shay must now accept Nona's changes and influences, including her sponsor Lois (Rogers) -- all forcing Shay to move past her pent-up anger and awaken her own relationships.
