Set in Russia during the harsh winter of 1905. A mother finds herself caught in emotional conflict between her husband and son when they find themselves on opposite sides of a worker's strike. The son is a supporter of the workers but the father has been blackmailed into supporting the bosses and blacklegs. Despite the grief which follows the mother gradually comes to support the strikers and eventually is prepared to risk everything in standing up to police and Cossak troops in a demonstration endangering both herself and her precious son.

"28.11. (Teatteri/35 mm) Äiti on visuaalista juhlaa niin kuvaukseltaan, mise-en-sceneltään kuin leikkaukseltaankin: suoranainen taideteos. Tämän ohella elokuvassa on nokkelaa huumoria etenkin oikeuden palvelijoiden suhteen: planssit kertovat tämän instituution tehokkuudesta, reiluudesta jne samalla, kun tuomariston jokainen jäsen tuntuu olevan yhden hyveen vastakohta, köyhän puolustus puolestaan surkuhupaisa vitsi. Symboliikka ja vastakkainasettelu ovat muutoinkin kekseliästä sorttia"
