Dear Mama...

14m Drama, Family 2022

It’s 1996 in South LA and Tanisha is mourning the recent loss of her mom. Much to Tanisha’s dismay, her dad, Nate, makes them pack up all of her mom’s belongings for charity, burying himself in this work to numb his own pain. He wants to push the family forward and leave the past behind, uncertain of how to deal with the feelings of a heartbroken teenager.

When they hear breaking news of the death of Tupac– an icon Tanisha and her mom once held dear– their confrontation reaches a boiling point. Tanisha wants to attend Tupac’s vigil but is challenged by Nate until he’s forced to see people grieve in different ways, and mourning Tupac provides a way for Tanisha to mourn her mom, as well.
