Cole further detailed the film in a press release. “This is a story of a daughter’s love for her mother, and although my heart remains broken from her untimely passing, I am honored to be sharing it with the world,” she said. “Playing the role of myself was a unique opportunity to re-live special moments in my life that also gave me the chance to process her loss in ways I did not expect. I miss her every day, and even though she is not here, her presence was felt throughout this film. Mom, I love you.”
