 Three teenagers
Three mothers
Three years in their lives…

At the beginning of the story, Kenya, Blanca and Viviana were 14, 15 and 16 years old. They got pregnant and gave birth.

After following them with the camera during that stage, life continued. Now, we return to their stories from the beginning of pregnancy and continue to accompany them to know how they are.

How do they raise their children? Did they achieve their dreams? Did they get pregnant again? Do your partners, your families, society support you?

These are not stories with a happy ending. These are stories to think about. And to act: traditional ideas about the identity of women and the sense of motherhood put us before more and more urgent questions.
