Summary
"Alma Thorpe's bizarre views on sexuality, motherhood and mail-order sweepstakes make her a living, breathing shrine to southern gothic. In this intimate and darkly humorous film, director Ruth Leitman follows Alma's daughter Margie on her journey with a mentally ill mother and an abusive, alcoholic father. Framed by accusations of incest, Alma is an unflinching examination of family secrets and pain tangled up in love."--Container
