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.

"Mother is an early, effective example of the technique of Soviet montage; its fast-paced, peculiar methods of editing are very non-conventional, even by today's standards. The result is an emotionally-gripping film, following themes of motherhood and martyrdom within the turn-of-the-century Russian Revolution. "
