This film is not any different from the Bollywood movie English Vinglish, where a woman goes to America for the first time and goes through a series of experience that changed her perspective on her life. A Dot Com Mom deals with the story of a middle-class single mother from a small town. She is quintessential Indian housewife, who works hard to raise her son. When her son goes to the States, he calls his mother and is super excited about her visit. The apparent clash between the mother and the daughter-in-law makes her stay in America troublesome.However, the ending of the movie is always positive and happy, and this film is not an exception.
