A father who chooses not to live with his children is still a father. But, in the eyes of many, a mother who chooses not to live with her kids is a monster. In this provocative short documentary, three women who made the decision to mother from afar tell their stories, and open up about what they lost—and gained—when they left the homes they had shared with their children. At a time when there’s growing acceptance for alternative family models, why does the idea of non-custodial motherhood still have the power to shock and appall?
