“Mom & Dad’s Nipple Factory” is a documentary by Emmy-award-winning filmmaker Justin Johnson, also known as Justinsuperstar, who has been creating popular content for TV and the web for nearly two decades, according to his website, justinsuperstar.com/.
The film follows the story of when Johnson’s mother Randi is diagnosed with breast cancer, “her introverted husband Brian, a traditional family man, transforms their modest Midwest home into a secret prosthetic nipple laboratory, an act of love that blossoms into a truly unexpected business, kept hidden from their church, small-town community, and five unsuspecting children.”
“Mom & Dad’s Nipple Factory” began its national tour this month as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, ahead of its digital release in 2024.
