Lion Mums traces the lives of three very different women who have the same goal of providing the best for their children. Jennifer Tan (Bernice Liu) is the perfect mother who has given up a promising career to raise her children. Durrani (Nurul Aini) is the ultimate career woman. A tough as nails lawyer who is out to prove that she can do anything. Min Yi (Vanessa Vanderstraaten), a single mother, is barely managing to hold her life together. She does whatever it takes to give the best to her son.
These three lionesses help each other through the issues Singapore parents go through of finding a balance between the academic excellence the education system demands and allowing their children to be little kids, enjoying their short precious childhood.
