A warmhearted look into a dire situation
5 February 2018 | by cattis26See all my reviews

I saw this documentary at the Docpoint Festival in Helsinki. It offered a non-intrusive look into giving birth in the Philippines and how a maternity clinic handles its huge volumes of customers. The humour of the staff, support between the mothers and the way simple things could make a huge difference made this a heartwarming experience. But without forgetting a reality check into what the lives of these mothers will be like after leaving the clinic. A real eye-opener.
