Mother’s Mink

Animated comedy starring famous prostitute, Carol Leigh (also known as Scarlot Harlot) and her mom, about Leigh’s efforts to obtain respectability as an artist, and to secure funding for a video about her mother’s mink. In a parallel tale, Leigh’s mom (and co-star) Augusta reminisces about how she “saved and suffered” to buy a mink stole to impress her mother.

Is this movie about the Harlot’s favorite subject, sex work? Judge for yourself!
