四十三歲的栗原在家中目睹女婿將女兒殺害,生活從此遁入黑暗。六年後,當她至獄中探訪女婿,試圖找尋事件的「真相」,竟發現女兒當年留下的手機,成了整起事件的關鍵。過往的傷疤脫落、家人的情感被重新撕裂,栗原必須作出最困難的決定。當各方聲音越演越烈,才清楚看到原諒與同理未必同時發生,直到片末,鏡頭仍殘酷地逼視每個角色內心,人性暗面,不言而喻。究竟不同的生命間,能承載彼此多少重量?當犯罪與社會的對峙高漲,真相也就只能渺小。導演試圖探問「人在面對難以理解的事件時,要如何自處?」犀利的敘事,不安晃動的畫面,直陳各式告白,像驟雨襲來,久久無法回神。

43-year-old Harumi is a married business woman whose tranquil life comes to a halt when she witnesses the murder of her only daughter Michiyo by her son-in-law Koji. 6 years later, when visiting the now-imprisoned Koji who is put on death row, Harumi discovers her daughter's secrets that are long hidden in the latter's locked cell phone. She suddenly decides to revoke the death sentence of her daughter's killer against the wishes of everyone in her family. Taking on a subject matter that goes beyond “revenge” and “forgiveness,” Her Mother deals with questions about the human psyche that we cannot quite understand.
