Ten stories seen and told by women from different parts of the world. Together the women’s narratives form an intense film about motherhood and love: the moment after first childbirth, the pride of being able to offer your children an education, and the bright moments of everyday life. The stories also show the effects of tragic events, above all the stories speak of survival and give us hope of a better tomorrow.
