The world's busiest maternity ward also tends to the world's poorest, as the Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in the Philippines teems with expecting moms and newborns in nearly every doorway. The camera glides along these corridors, observing the frenetic pacing of a hospital understaffed and overpopulated. Despite challenging conditions, nurses, doctors, and social workers alike strive to provide the best possible care in this eye-opening documentary from festival alum Ramona Diaz (*Don't Stop Believin'*, MFF2012), appointment viewing for anyone interested in women's health on a global scale.
