Cholewa's French sci-fi horror film is set against the arrival of Haley's comet, an event that begins to turn the world's populace into violent mutants. TLA is planning a cross-platform release in France and U.K. for the title. Two Mothers focuses on the struggles of a happily married lesbian couple who want a baby to find a man to donate the sperm for artificial insemination.
