    Short film

When Heather decides to lose her virginity for her 15th birthday, Mom’s wife must convince Mom, and Mom’s ex, and Mom’s ex’s partner that it’s time for Heather to have “the talk”. Which mom is ready to help Heather make the big decision? It’s a mother-daughter story. Four times. “One of the threads of everyday lesbian life that I think has scant visibility in lesbian film, are the stories of the complexities of lesbian motherhood. Heather Has Four Moms so perfectly captures several of the threads at once: the reconstituted lesbian family, who is and who isn’t really the mother, raising heterosexual children, and even just raising children, period” (Tessa Rooney – Canuckamuck Productions and Dyke Drama Film Festival).
