Where to watch it: Available on Showmax

Being a poor single mum who lives pay cheque to pay cheque can be challenging. In this illuminating doccie, film makers follow a year in the life of mom of three Katrina Gilbert, who gets paid a pittance as a certified nursing assistant and must still make ends meet.

What’s significant about Gilbert is that her story is similar to that of 42 million American women and the 28 million children who depend on them.

Although based in the US, this is a documentary that speaks volumes about the experiences of single working mothers all over the world.
