Complicated as only families can be, they are bound together by their love for one another, and for a piping hot bag of chips.

When misfortune strikes and Granny moves in, they learn to understand each other anew through new stories and old memories.

Sometimes, in a family as complicated as the Augustts, it's not always what is spoken that makes the most sense. M for Mammy is an uplifting story about the unique comfort of home, the language we can find when the words aren't there, and the power of a family to heal itself.
