Directed by Chloe White, 2019

In this provocative short documentary for Topic, three women who made the decision to mother from afar tell their stories, and open up about what they lost—and gained—when they left the homes they had shared with their children. At a time when there’s growing acceptance for alternative family models, why does the idea of non-custodial motherhood still have the power to shock and appall?
