Synopsis

Imagine you’re at a job interview and you’ve just been offered a position with the most inhumane conditions you can think of: you have to be available 24h a day, no breaks, no sitting, always ready, very little sleep and no remuneration. Seems like a job that couldn’t possibly exist. It is a job done by millions of people every day: mothers. Then there are those mothers who, out of necessity or out of a desire for independence and personal fulfillment, also have a job outside the home. And so, the fatigue, stress, anxiety increase and amplify. Feeling anxious yet? Well, now let's raise the stakes. Some of them do both jobs by themselves. They are single mothers, the ones for whom the word ‘multitasking’ seems to have been invented. #MALAMAMMA is a series that explores the idea of maternal resistance. 2 mothers, Alice and Mia. 2 daughters, Anita and Matilde. Are we ready for new family models? Can you become a good mother without losing the woman inside you?
