Through the Night is an intimate cinema verite portrait of working mothers whose lives intersect at a 24-hour daycare center:

  • a mother working the overnight shift at a pediatric hospital,
  • another holding 3 jobs to support her family and
  • the woman who cares for the children whose parents have nowhere else to turn.

“This quietly engaging documentary is also subtly political, showing with clear eyes how good people are trying to patch gaps in our society that shouldn’t be there in the first place.”

Los Angeles Times
