"Every mother's worst fear is the loss of her child. "Star Child" tells the story of a mother who struggles to remember what happened to her missing son, a young boy who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Sarah's internal battle to accept the loss of her child is a metaphor for the struggle that all mothers endure as they learn to accept their children for who they are and who they yearn to be. Mothers across the world project their own desires and goals onto their children in hopes that they will follow a predetermined life path. "Star Child" proves how mothers can adapt and evolve, ultimately encouraging their progeny to pursue those unconventional careers and lifestyles they so often desire."
