The natural and adoptive mothers of a young boy are involved in a bitter, controversial custody battle.
Jessica Lange said in an interview "I let myself get talked into 'Losing Isaiah' because I hadn't worked for awhile. I knew it wasn't right, the script wasn't right, there was no ending. It just didn't feel right, and it never got right. It was a really difficult, and painful experience."
Any animal can give birth. That doesn't make it a mother.
Khaila Richards: Are you calling me an animal? If you think you're going to just take my baby from me like some puppy from a pound, you got another thing coming, lady!
Khaila could not have known that Isaiah "liked to play with blocks", since she had not had him with her while he was growing up from infancy, and he'd always just sullenly moped around whenever he was at her apartment and never wanted to play or interact with the other children at day-care, so Khaila would never have seen Isaiah when he was truly just "at play" and thus learned what toys were his favorites.
