Original title: Mater

An adventure in search of what makes us human

In the new society described in Mater, gestation takes place outside the female body. For this reason, when Zoe discovers to her astonishment that she is pregnant, she decides to flee, and heads into the woods with a friend.

Here, small human colonies still survive, hidden and persecuted, remaining on the margins of scientific progress. The contrast between both worlds is disturbing.
