Seven Mothers

SYNOPSIS

SEVEN MOTHERS is a love letter to the women who raised Pyer Moss founder Kerby Jean-Raymond after his mother’s death. A young boy cries at his mother’s funeral and moves through his grief in touching vignettes, as these seven strong women impart lessons about food, business, fashion, academics, sport, family, and faith. The boy returns to church alongside his “religious mother,” and as he enjoys the gospel choir, he is shattered by a reminder of his mother. That night, his mother appears in his dream, an ethereal figure still watching over him, and finds strength and love in her spirit.
