The former actress and current alcoholic hits her nadir on Christmas Eve. Her five young children hope for a Christmas celebration. Instead, they get a fight with their mother, who & rsquo;s absolutely plastered and fresh off yet another failed relationship. After lashing out at her children, Caroline passes out under the bent and mangled Christmas tree. For the Townsend children, this proves to be a rare opportunity & mdash;a chance to set things right with their mother. Together, they concoct an elaborate ruse designed to teach her a lesson, once and for all. Mothertime finds Gillian White at her uproarious best as she nimbly skewers motherhood and modern marriage.
