Synopsis (taken from
A Dot Com Mom is the story of a simple middle-class mother from a small town. Like many Indian housewives, she works hard to raise her son, who then travels to the United States of America and becomes rich and successful. He invites his parents and wife to visit him, but only the mother manages to travel to the United States of America. Her son is excited and wants to show his mother the whole country, but his mother cannot cope with the modernity of the United States and gets in trouble. The daughter-in-law cannot bear her mother-in-law's presence in her house, and finally, instead of staying for four months, the mother decides to go back to India early. Months later, a situation arises where her son wants the mother to go back to the US. The mother is reluctant but the father insists that she returns, since the daughter-in-law needs help during labor. But, this time, the mother-in-law arrives prepared, finding two months to change herself
