Child Mother takes place in the privacy of public hospital wards. Based on the voice of young women going through maternity in their adolescence, and suffering from violence and extreme vulnerability, the film delves into the vicissitudes of making a decision: whether or not to continue with a pregnancy. "Mother Child" is the encounter with their life stories, the tensions of these forced maternities and the latent fear caused by unsafe and clandestine abortions.
