Two woman talk on a playground

Cry it Out

Jessie and Lina are neighbors and brand-new mothers on parental leave. The shared digital sweet spot of their baby monitors forces them to meet in the backyard for their daily coffee during naptime.  In this oasis, they share hilarious, maddening, heartbreaking stories about family, home, work and motherhood. Their friendship becomes an essential and empowering force in their lives.  

But hold on!  They learn that someone has been watching there room for another parent in the oasis?

In Cry It Out, Molly Smith Metzler examines how each character navigates the socio-economic hand they have been dealt and scrutinizes the assumptions many still make about how a "good mother" should behave. It is a comedic gem with a shrewd and thoughtful undertow.
