Resilience is a documentary that confronts long-held stereotypes by stepping inside the lives of three women, Nancy, Simone and Gloria.

With honesty, intelligence and humour, the three women reflect on their experiences of balancing single parenthood, working life, relationships and the fulfillment of their own goals in the context of society.  By interweaving these intimate stories, the documentary offers a deeper understanding of the challenges, practical strategies and dreams of three resilient mothers in Canada.

“Resilience effectively captures the reality of three single mothers through candid revelations of their triumphs and struggles as single parents today,” commented Alain Strati, Vice President OMNI Station Group, Specialty & Development..
