The female lead, Allison, has a 5-year-old daughter, Grace, whom she hasn't seen in person in three months because Allison is working on a documentary, traveling with storm-chasers. At one point, Allison talks with her own mother via video chat about how Grace is doing, and about feeling guilty for not being around for Grace. In a rather unusual touch, her mother reassures her rather than condemning her. Then Allison also talks to Grace via video chat, about her work, and when she's finally coming home. Allison is pretty much the doc team's token female (and the movie's, apart from a generic love-interest girl), but at least she does have her own family life and relationships with other women.
