Glasgow, 1920.

Fourteen year old Mima Reilley hurries to work. A box-packer in a local biscuit factory, she works all hours to care for her invalid mother.

Most young girls Mima's age have their sights set on finding a man, financial security, and a family.

But not Mima.

She has her sights set on higher goals.

But with life comes love, and soon Mima finds herself caring for not just an ageing parent, but a husband and, soon, a beautiful baby boy.

As the countdown to the Second World War begins, can Mima cling on to those she loves and the life that she always hoped to lead?

Is 'A Mother's Love' enough to keep a family together? Or will tragedy overtake her?

'A Mother's Love' is the story of friendship and families, love and laughter, and of heart-warming strength in the face of terrible hardship.
