...unfortunately, I've made it my job now so I'll make something up.
All About My Mother is, frankly, depressing. The movie follows Manuela, a mother whose child has been run over while he was hunting for his idol's autograph. Young Esteban dying is one of the most poignant scenes I have ever had the pleasure of watching. The way that director Pedro Almodóvar uses the camera in first person at the critical moment is a tribute to the fine directing throughout the whole film.
The story continues with Manuela hunting down her son's father, whose identity she had fought to conceal from him throughout his childhood. Her journey takes her to Barcelona - from where she'd fled during her pregnancy - where she meets a few other women whose stories are equally desolate.
All About My Mother will touch every member of an audience, enabling them to empathise - or sympathise - with at least one of the characters.
