“It’s packed with skilled depictions of the tension between independence and vulnerability, taking almost surreal routes beneath the surface”
– Rich Cline, Shadows On The Wall –

“Materna follows the journeys of four New York women who are isolated by city life, separated by class, politics, race and religion, and yet bound by a shared hunger for identity and connection. With their futures at stake, the characters’ lives are upended by a fateful encounter underground, where their stories of personal transformation become a battle for survival.”
