“Mother’s Day” features Ursula Buckley, an elderly woman suffering from arthritic knees. She can hear her dog, Lady, and Lady’s newborn pups beneath her trailer during a torrential thunderstorm, and their panic at the flooding den they all inhabit breaks Ursula’s heart. But why isn’t Lady getting them out? And if Lady can’t help them, what can Ursula possibly do? Will Ursula risk her own life to save her dog and the puppies?
