"With unexpected humor, with an unflinching camera, with some guilt and some pain, this film takes the unusual risk of examining what breast milk truly means.
We are often told that breast milk is better. Better for babies, better for mothers, better for nutrition, health, well-being, and society. Many accept this and yet there are still very few women who succeed in breastfeeding exclusively for the recommended six months and beyond. What would it take to change?"

Our society at large (not just mothers) needs to be better educated on this topic. Nursing mothers are more likely to succeed when they are surrounded by support, encouragement and the feeling of security. Lets educate our community and help create that safe space for our mothers and babies to thrive.
