Investigating the disappearance of his two older half-siblings, born to his mother – then still in her teens – over forty years ago, director Danny Ben-Moshe unravels an intricate web of secrets and lies. Set predominantly in the UK but also Iran, Israel, Australia and the US, My Mother’s Lost Children is an exceptional family saga that involves teen pregnancy, adultery, out-of-wedlock births and mental health issues, all traumas that had been swept under the carpet for decades but whose long-lasting effects are finally faced head on.
