Mabel's Saga -- Film Description:
"Mabel is juggling the demands of work, teenagers and an elderly mother. Now, she is confronted with a new challenge: hot flashes and chin hairs! Before you can say 'estrogen,' purple-haired Mabel finds herself the unassuming heroine of her own adventure... the adventure of aging. Mabel's Saga is a touching, funny film that celebrates menopause as a natural transition. The film blends colourful computer animation with a lush musical landscape, offering a reassuring look at one of the most important passages in a woman's life--and showing that aging brings its own rewards. A film without words."
