Synopsis: Motherland is an absorbingly intimate, vérité look at the busiest maternity hospitality on the planet, in one of the world’s most populous countries–-- the Philippines. Women share their stories with other mothers, doctors and social workers. In a hospital that is literally bursting with life, we witness the miracle and wonder of the human condition.
