*** Filmmaker LUCI WESTPHAL in person! ***
"A great film which captures the can-do DIY punk spirit and shows a slice of life we seldom see in films, but should see more often, especially now as society enters into another culture war on women and the poor."
- Brian Newman, SUB-GENRE MEDIA
"Punk, politics and parenthood are my life's recipe, so Luci Westphal's documentary is a delicious, filling meal with a spot-on soundtrack! No matter the 90s or the 21st century, moms making music and raising kids while living meaningful, thoughtful and well-intentioned lives remains a timeless source of inspiration and reminder that life is short and growth is inevitable."
- Jessica Mills, author of MY MOTHER WEARS COMBAT BOOTS

ALL'S WELL AND FAIR juxtaposes the lives and ideals of three single punk rock mothers on welfare during the 1990s with their realities and opinions ten years later—giving a unique perspective on alternative culture, growth and identity.
In 1996, single welfare mothers Rachel Guinan, Margaret Briggs and Tina Bushnell won a "F*** The Government" song contest in Gainesville, Florida. Inspired by the spirit of the song, filmmaker Luci Westphal documented the women's lives and their views on the different subjects mentioned in their lyrics.
Ten years later, filming continued with the women discussing the same topics again—now suddenly homeowners, in their 30s, with teenage children and other major life changes. Juxtaposing their 1996 and modern-day perspectives, the film explores how much their opinions and lifestyles have changed over the course of a decade and how it has influenced the lives of their children.
