PORTUGUESE PREMIERE AWARD CEREMONY 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. César Nóbrega
