Requiem for My Mother (2017) is a film about composer Stephen Edwards' journey mourning the loss of his mother. In his grief, he writes a new major choral work, and gets invited with a large chorus to perform at a music festival in Rome. It is the story of film composer Stephen Edwards' journey of the loss of his mother and main musical influence Rosalie Edwards. As she is suffering and dying from ovarian cancer, Stephen undertakes the most challenging commission of his life. Immediately he channels all of his anger, passion, sadness, loss and hope for the future into a new major choral work that he gets invited to present in Vatican City at a noted music festival there. That's where the challenge begins.
