The Empty Womb (El vientre vacío)

Maternity: portrait of a generation

Many women nowadays want to have children but their economic situation does not allow them to. Plenty of women between 30 and 50 have seen themselves forced to abandon their dream of being mothers for not being able to afford a child.
