The film was made in Acapulco, Mexico. Six women -- dreamy Eileen, abrasive Nan, athletic Skipper, brusque Leslie, vivacious Jennifer and patient Gayle -- are staying at a hotel in Latin America, run by Señora Muñoz. Fed up with the long delays of the adoption system in the United States, they are passing the days waiting to adopt local children to bring back home with them. Written by

This is a wonderfully compelling film that seemingly covers all perspectives of Americans adopting children in Latin and South America. You won't soon forget the stories and the characters: the street children, the American women, the maids at the hotel -- so many good actors, such a moving story. The little boy who plays the principal street child warrants an Oscar. There was a collective sigh from the audience when it ended because I think we all wanted to see more.
