Mother Of All - There’s no greater warrior than a mother protecting her child.
What if the only way a an ex-cop/ex-con mother can defend her daughter risks alienating her even further from her and denying herself redemption?
What happens in Mother Of All season 1?
Nolwazi "Nono" Mathebula, an ex-cop, walks out of prison, resolved to be an exemplary daughter to her religious mother, an amazing mother to her celebrity daughter and through gainful employment - a model citizen. Even when both her mother and daughter reject her, and the South African job market proves to be just as unforgiving, Nono remains steadfast in her resolutions.
However, when a local gangster slits her daughter's boyfriend's throat and, makes sure her daughter's fingerprints are on the murder weapon to blackmail her into submission - Nono has no choice but to be as ruthless as she was in prison. This ex-cop survived a 10-year sentence amongst dangerous inmates intent to kill her every night only because killer whales can only survive shark-infested waters. A side of her, Nono hopes both his mother and daughter never see.
Nono raises an all-women army made of ex-convicts - all searching for redemption - rejected by their respective families and the South African job market to save her daughter. When the local gangster proves to be the ground floor of a skyscraper, Nono and her posse find themselves in an endless battle pilling bodies on every floor - a cure potentially worse than the initial disease.
