A Nigerian woman is faced with an ethical paradox in Mother of George, a poetic 2013 Sundance Festival favorite.

Coping with a problem that defies cultural expectations leads Adenike to make a shocking decision that could either save or destroy her family. The film screens Sunday, Jan. 19, at Taylor Little Theatre. Tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for students/seniors and $1 for Mercyhurst students (with ID). For tickets, call 814-824-3000 or visit miac.mercyhurst.edu.
