Mama, Don't


Written by Arianna Ortiz & David Garrett
Directed by David Garrett
Shooting 2014

Mama, Don’t is a feature-length drama and thriller set in the drought-parched fracking fields of south Texas. Though it's a hell of a place to live, Mama doesn’t want to leave. But she's gotten too sick to care for herself, her ex-con son is no help, and her eldest daughter is ready to put her in a home and sell everything she's got.

Mama ain't gonna take it, not even from her kids.
