From Finland to Kazakhstan, from Brazil to India, from Russia to Uganda, from China to the United States, from Ghana to Iceland, from Australia to Portugal: women from all around the world tell their stories, being motherhood the linking theme. These women who are struggling against incredible adversities give us hope for a better future. These mothers’ wish is the desire to leave a better world for their children. The personal stories revealed in Mother’s Wish are actually filled with political and social battles for the recognition of women's roles in our society.
