Time Out says

Rivka Hartman's highly personal portrait of her late mother, Dora, a leading pathologist-turned-pioneer in matters of child care and abuse, reveals a strong willed, self-motivated, immensely energetic Jewish woman whose warmth and generosity fell far short of reaching her daughter. Some of the family adored her, but they never stood up to her - for Rivka, who may end up as domineering as mom, it was an endless battle. Home movies, interviews with family and friends, and Hartman's reminiscences make for a surprisingly engrossing hour.
