MOTHERLAND takes us into the heart of the planet's
busiest maternity hospital in one of the world's poorest and most
populous countries: the Philippines. The film's viewer, like an unseen
outsider dropped unobtrusively into the hospital's stream of activity,
passes through hallways, enters rooms and listens in on conversations.
At first, the surrounding people are strangers. But as the film continues,
it's absorbingly intimate, rendering the women at the heart of the story
increasingly familiar. Three women -- Lea, Aira and Lerma -- emerge
to share their stories with other mothers, their families, doctors and
social workers. While each of them faces daunting odds at home, their
optimism, honesty and humor suggest a strength that they will certainly
have to summon in the years ahead.
