Based on the True Story and Bestselling Novel
A beautiful and heart-breaking movie based on the international best-selling book, Mum’s List tells the true story of Singe Greene, who endured the tragic loss to cancer of Kate, his wife and mother of his two children.
When Kate is diagnosed with an incurable breast cancer, her family’s life is turned upside-down. Nothing is as important as the happiness and well-being of her family for Kate. Over her last few days she created ‘Mum’s List’, writing her thoughts, wishes and memories down, to help the man she loved create the best life possible for their sons after she was gone.
Written on scraps of paper or sent as text messages, the list captures her passionate nature, her free spirit, her sense of humour, and her undying love for her family.
Some entries were instructions… observations… others, memories to be kept alive forever. All of them, a memorial to the woman being forced to say goodbye.
