Mother: Caring for 7 Billion is an award-winning film that exposes the critical challenges we face in a world of 7 billion. It tells the story of Beth, an American mother and child's right activist, and her journey to understand the impact of overpopulation on children and families around the world.
Beth travels to Ethiopia and meets a young woman, Zinet, living in extreme poverty who, against all odds, found the courage to break free from thousand-year-old cultural barriers by refusing to get married young and fighting to attend school.
By featuring world-renowned experts, Mother shows how this pivotal issue intersects with gender equity, religion, reproductive health, economic inequality and the environment. Mother is fundamentally a film of hope and shows the strength of the human spirit to make a better world.
