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

Desperate American women, unable to bear children, wait for months at a hotel in Mexico, in order to adopt babies.
Meanwhile, homeless and apparently parent less or unwanted children sleep in cardboard shelters and roam the streets, stealing and washing windows for survival, while one young woman reminisces about the baby she gave up, and another, pregnant and 15 years old, is on the path to giving up her baby.
This is a very affecting movie. It presents the situation, prompts us to ask the questions, but there are no answers.
The characters were interesting, and the performances are compelling. Rita Moreno, especially, was wonderful as the hotel owner.
