You know that age-old question, “what would your mother think”? Well, have you ever asked her? In NRS and Forge Motion Picture’ssecond episode of Of Souls + Water: The Mother, Melody Shapiro, at the age of 67, reflects on her life, her hopes, her failures and her dreams while exploring the remarkably beautiful canyons of the Utah desert.

“We just let Melody talk,” says director Skip Armstrong. “These are purely her words, her thoughts.” And they’re beautiful.
