Synopsis:  “I rather have a dead father than have a father who doesn’t talk to me.”

On My Own is an eye-opening documentary that shatters the stigma of single motherhood. Sweeping through the black experience in America, the film’s comprehensive attitude is a refreshing breeze that cools the heated, and often unproductive discourse of black family life in America. Through conversations with single mothers, fathers, community leaders and family experts, the documentary offers another facade to the one-sided image of single motherhood.
