Following her mother’s death, Alice stands to inherit half a million dollars. All she has to do to claim the money is to recall a few stories about her mother…100 stories in fact, and tell those stories to other people…within a week.
It all starts out well enough, but then the project takes on a life of its own. There’s an Instagram account, a whole lot of (unwelcome) public interest, and then the police get involved.
And at the worst possible time, Alice falls in love.
Set in Düsseldorf, 100 Mothers is about how the stories we tell shape our present and our future.
