In the ad viewers see their typical mum-daughter relationship as the mum helps her daughter with her hair, tells her to take her make up off before a night out and discovers she's stolen her perfume.

But despite the daughter thinking her mum is just there to ruin her fun she finds out that there's more to her mother than meets the eye during the ad.
