On Monday night, Lifetime's focus is death. "Any Mother's Son" is about the murder of a U.S. Navy seaman at the hands of a shipmate. The fact-based story also traces the evolution of his working-class mother, who says she never met a homosexual before she learned that her own son was gay. Now, five years after her own fight with the Navy, she has joined a support group for parents of gays and can talk about her son's violent death and about changes in her life.
