Mama/M.A.M.A.: Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy� is the provocative investigation of Munchausen�s Syndrome by Proxy, a perplexing psychological disorder where a mother secretly but deliberately harms her child in order to get the sympathy and praise of others and the attention of the medical community. The film -- made over the course of three years and two continents -- scrutinizes the scientific research surrounding the diagnosis of Munchausen�s and, in doing so, questions the very diagnosis itself. The filmmakers document the struggles of three average families battling the charge of Munchausen�s with various, tragic results.
