Synopsis

Mothers of Luna is a short film of crossed stories. Four women, of different places in the world, are united by the voice of a very special baby: the little girl that was not able to be born of them, but who lived in their tummies.

Mothers of Luna is a tale, a fable and a symbol. Four stories in one . The legacy of all the forgotten women. The voice of the ones who suffer. Also, it is the scream of a Moon that grows inside and, as a little child, innocent, shows us the things we just don't want to see.
