Mother's Day is coming soon and Antonio is excited to make cards for both his mother and her partner, Leslie. But he's not sure what to do when his classmates make fun of Leslie, an artist, who towers over everyone and wears paint-splattered overalls. As Mother's Day approaches, Antonio must choose whether—or how—to express his connection to both of the special women in his life.
