New York-based journalist Erica Anderson is fighting with her mom Kini Christie about the Covid vaccine. It’s early 2021, and Erica, who struggled through a bout of Covid early in the pandemic, is eagerly anticipating the vaccine’s arrival. Her mom is suspicious of the vaccine’s safety and says there’s no way she’ll get the shot. In an effort to maintain her relationship with her mother, Erica asks Kini to talk through their differences. However, things only get more complicated from there. Episode 1 of 6.
