About the Project

All’s Well and Fair gives a unique perspective on growth and identity, choice and consequence, through portraying three punk rock mothers and their five children. All’s Well and Fair questions the stereotypes of “welfare moms” and alternative culture while examining the pitfalls of capitalism and living on the cusp of poverty. Do these women lead lives of integrity outside of the mainstream system or are they just feeding off the system? Did they have a choice? Through the unique approach of filming the women and their children twice over ten years, in 1996 and 2006, All’s Well and Fair furthermore considers how much we all change as we grow up and how much we might stay the same.
