Re-introduced to her mother’s plays and letters, the film follows Lorraine’s personal journey as she reflects on her own life and begins to understand the struggles her mother faced.The Arbor featuring Christine Bottomley and Manjinder Virk is streaming on Fandor, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video.
