CALVARY’s Father James is a good priest who is faced with sinister and troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral – and often comic – problems, he feels sinister and troubling forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary.

The Milky Way is an eye-opening documentary about breastfeeding and an exposé of the pervasive formula marketing in America. The U.S. has one of the lowest breastfeeding rates in the world; the simple act of nursing a baby elicits a broad range of reactions, especially when done in public. We show how women can reclaim their birthright and return the nursing mother to her natural and crucial role in our society. We seek to bring back the community of mothers and change the way women support each other. More than a breastfeeding promotion film, this is a film by, for, and about women. 
The Milky Way captures how mothers can access their inner knowledge; trust their babies and their own body’s wisdom, and why they should. It is a film that inspires women to say, “I can do that!” “I want to do that!” Our mission is to elevate the nursing mother to a place in society where she receives all the necessary support to nurse her child, where scientific evidence overrides marketing influences, and a woman does not fear nursing in public.
