This raw but flawed dramatic special, starring Rachel (Total Recall) Ticotin, Lolita (Blaze) Davidovich and Rae Dawn Chong, is made up of three vignettes—two about mothers and one about a mother-to-be behind bars.

The stories, the characters and the language all carry a hard edge, but their half-hour lengths make the segments seem abrupt and implausible.
