When her mother became widowed during the Rwandan genocide, Mahoro dropped out of primary school and now prostitutes herself to provide for her own children. To cope with her dire circumstance, she compulsively cleans.

"Hora Mama" was an official selection of the 2016 WVN Online Film Festival.

"Hora Mama" is part of the Women's Voices Now Film Archive.
