Somehow, I kept reading the title of the movie as Mildred Piece, which in a way still makes sense, since Mildred is persistently giving Vida a piece of her heart only to have that very heart pierced by Vida with every attempt she makes.

The plot is a surprisingly non-violent noir narrative (barring the cold open that ends in murder) but it's mixed with enough familial tension to blur the line between noir and melodrama.

The film opens with a murder and it is the investigation into said murder that leads to an unexpected story of a mother who would do anything for a daughter who so doesn't deserve the mother she has.
