“Ma” is a short film written in response to a late night interview where the Mother of a man who had been murdered spoke of attending the trial of his murderer.  Day on day she sat in the same seat as she watched and listened, and thought to herself that no one could ever be asked to sit in so difficult a seat.  As the trial progressed, she observed the mother of the man who had killed her son, the grief she bore, and thought that as cruel a cross as her’s was, there were crosses harder to bear.
