Mother and Milk describes the mental process of becoming a parent – imagined as a catastrophe film. When the baby is born the new mother has to give up the life she knew. A flood of breast milk covers everything – her home, work, friends, relationship and a good night’s sleep. Only after realizing she is a part of the eternal chain of generations, Mother is able to accept the situation and start living her new life in the family.
