Semalam Ibu tengok cerita Return To Zero. Cerita ini mengisahkan bagaimana debaran dan kegembiraan satu pasangan menanti detik kelahiran anak pertama mereka. Bagaimana mereka hiaskan bilik bayi, beli barang kelengkapan bayi dan juga mengadakan baby shower. Semuanya sungguh indah dan istimewa.

Return To Zero
Based on a true story, Return to Zero tells the story of a successful couple, Maggie (Minnie Driver) and Aaron (Paul Adelstein), who are preparing for the arrival of their first child. Just weeks before their due date they are devastated to discover that their baby son has died in the womb and will be stillborn. The two attempt to go on with their lives but cannot escape their postpartum grief and their relationship has been forever altered by this loss. They try to cope in a myriad of ways-- through denial, escape, and alcohol-- but when Maggie discovers that Aaron is having an affair with a co-worker, she decides to end the marriage. Just when Maggie believes she has started a new life, she discovers that she is pregnant. With the help of an empathetic doctor who once experienced a similar loss, Maggie finally learns to grieve for her son and must reunite with Aaron to prepare for their second pregnancy.
- Return to Zero is based on the real-life experience of Sean Hanish and his wife. Sean and his wife Kiley had a stillborn child. In 2005, in week 37 of the pregnancy, after a healthy check just the previous month, there was no heartbeat from their unborn child. Their son, Norbert, was born still. Sean used the actual diagnosis of his son in the film as well as some of the beautiful words that were said at his memorial service.
- Return to Zero has been selected as one of the official selection of RIFF Awards 2014, and CINEQUEST Film Festival.
