The story of several women in India, A Mother’s Dream tells about their dreams of a better future for themselves and for their families through surrogacy. The film follows six women through different stages of surrogacy in a clinic in the north-west of India. It explores the women's hopes, the conflicts they face while living together, and what happens to them after they give birth to their babies. This film is a subtle portrait of six mothers on their surrogate journey, giving them a voice that often remains unheard.
