A Mother's Gift

A Mother's Gift

A Mother's Gift is a short documentary based on three Irish female entrepreneurs from Dublin who have inherited their business from their mothers and hope to pass on the tradition to the next female generation within their family. They each come from very different backgrounds and give us an insight into what it is like to run a business with the struggles of keeping a legacy and a tradition alive.
