Six American women (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Daryl Hannah, Marcia Gay Harden, Susan Lynch, Mary Steenburgen and Lili Taylor), trapped together in a South American motel run by the colorful Señora Muñoz (Rita Moreno), anxiously await the local bureaucracy to process their adoption of newborns from the nearby orphanage. Over the weeks, they share hope and desperation surrounding their overwhelming desires to have a child. Writer/director John Sayles (Sunshine State, Lone Star) offers an insightful look at clashing cultures, modern maternity and the mystery of fate. (Partially subtitled) Official Web Site
