What happens when your experience of motherhood is nothing at all what you hoped for, but everything you always feared?   'The women in this family, we're different...'   Blythe Connor doesn't want history to repeat itself. Violet is her first child and she will give her daughter all the love she deserves. All the love that her own mother withheld.   But firstborns are never easy. And Violet is demanding and fretful. She never smiles.   Soon Blythe believes she can do no right - that something's very wrong. Either with her daughter, or herself.   Her husband, Fox, says she's imagining it. But Violet's different with him. And he can't understand what Blythe suffered as a child. No one can.   Blythe wants to be a good mother. But what if that's not enough for Violet? Or her marriage? What if she can't see the darkness coming? Mother and daughter. Angel or monster? We don't get to choose our inheritance - or who we are... Watch more videos.
