Of all the voices Mum hears I wish one of them could be mine.

Synopsis

Short Reviews

Equal parts heart-warming and gut-wrenching, Get Up Mum is both a funny time capsule of one year in a teenage boy's life mixed with a very adult and very tragic tale of a young boy forced to deal with his Mum's severe mental illness.
