Just Mothers


Dai (21) and Stefi (20) grew up in Monte Chingolo, a slum in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Argentina. They are friends and they are mothers. Sometimes they are single-mothers, sometimes they try to bring back family-life. They were still teenagers , when they both gave birth to a baby-girl. Their story is about their daily struggle to survive, the intent to provide a better future for their daughters, to finish school and work at the same time, to build a house and to protect them from the present violence and poverty that surrounds them. It's a story of sacrifice, of friendship, but most of all, it's a story of love, the unconditional love of a mother to her daughter.
