Casa de los Babys

Casa de los Babys is an intense and provocative ensemble drama. Casa captures six American women at one of the most emotionally charged moments of their lives- each one on the verge of adopting a baby. Trapped together in an exotic South American motel run by the colorful Señora Muñoz, they anxiously wait for the local bureaucracy to process their adoption of newborns from the nearby orphanage. Over the weeks, they share the hope and desperation surrounding their overwhelming desires to have a child.
