A volatile, unreliable mother battles for custody of her young daughter. The young daughter has the most screen time; there's also a nanny, who is the most consistent caregiver. The nanny and mother don't speak much, because the mother is threatened and won't recognize the nanny's importance in her daughter's life. So, the lack of communication is an aspect of the story and purposeful. However, there are terse words in passing, mostly about childcare.
