This film is family friendly.

"Supermom" is a "must see" award-winning short film about a daughter who believes her mother is a real life super hero and she might be right. Starring John Hensley (star of Nip/TuckTeeth) and Justine Herron (Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain). 

Director's Statement

Supermom deals with the too often overlooked group of people - our first responders and how their families deal with the possibility of not knowing a parent will be coming home at night. The Los Angeles Fire Department officially helped me make this film, donating various resources; they believed in it that strongly. Supermom is a metaphor for children who have parents, especially mothers, with jobs where they might not come home at night. It is also a diverse story about breaking the mold of what a mother is supposed to be.
