CINEMALAYA 2011 SPOTLIGHT: EDUARDO ROY JR.'S "BAHAY-BATA"








BAHAY BATA BY EDUARDO ROY JR. AND JEROME ZAMORA

Synopsis:

Sarah is a nurse at a Public Maternity Hospital. The hospital is abuzz with pregnant mothers of all shapes and sizes in different stages of labor. The hospital is short on staff on Christmas Day so Sarah is forced to put in a double shift.  Sarah observes the women coming and going in her ward, noting who is a first-timer and who is a veteran. Meanwhile, the wards are overcrowded : two women and their babies sharing single beds while those in labor are spilling unto the hallways. Sarah takes these all in stride, her heart and mind laboring over her own personal pains.
