Women no Pause is a documentary which shows women above the age of 45 from all over the world. In Japan through to France, Spain, the Equator and all the way to Tanzania, we will meet mothers, wives, working women, housewives, grandmothers and gynecologists, who above all want to be seen as WOMEN. There has never been a documentary made comparing this period of menopause in different cultures. And, for the first time, here is a documentary showing the different ways a woman feels in this moment of her life. But women do not live alone: husbands, children, brothers and friends also appear in this documentary talking about women and, in many cases confirming that they live this period in silence.
