What Is the Story of The Good Mother?
Set in a run-down home in suburban Mount Vernon, NY, The Good Mother centers around Larissa, a middle-aged single mom raising a four-year-old daughter. When Larissa gets asked out by a trucker named Jonathan, she invites Angus, the college-aged son of her old counselor Joel, to her house to babysit. When she returns home from a drunken night, Larissa panics when she realizes that her daughter (who is non-verbal, has a long list of food allergies and is on the autism spectrum) has begun acting strangely. After interrogating Angus, Larissa enlists Joel, Jonathan and Buddy, an ex-boyfriend and police officer, to uncover the truth. As Larissa denies her problems, the trio of men try to help her face the truth of her troubled past and become a better mother to her child.
