Explore the stories of those whose lives intersect at a 24-hour daycare center.

Through the Night, presented by POV, is an intimate cinema veritĂ© portrait of three working mothers whose lives all intersect at a 24-hour daycare center: a mother working the overnight shift as an essential worker at a hospital; another holding down three jobs just to support her family; and a woman who for over two decades has cared for the children of parents with nowhere else to turn. POV: Through the Night premieres on WXXI-TV Monday, May 10, 2021 at 10 p.m. 

A tender portrait of titanic strength, love, and selflessness, Through the Night showcases the multiplicity of “women’s work” -- paid, underpaid, and unpaid; emotional and physical; domestic and career-oriented -- all while negotiating the terms of a dignified existence under the three arrows of racism, sexism, and capitalism in America.
