Written and directed by Iris K. Shim, Umma explores mother-daughter relationships across two generations and the fear of becoming all the things we spend a lifetime trying not to be. Haunted by the tormented spirits of ancestors.

Umma, (the Korean word for “mother”) follows Amanda (Sandra Oh) and her daughter (Fivel Stewart) living a quiet life on an American farm, but when the remains of her estranged mother arrive from Korea, Amanda becomes haunted by the fear of turning into her own mother.
