The dedication at the end of this film is "TO all actresses who have played caresses, to all women who act, to men who act and become women, to all the people who want to be mothers…to my mother." The film is about the roles women are given in life and the roles they craft for themselves. It is about a variety of women, from lesbian actresses and pregnant nuns to grieving mothers and transgender prostitutes, who rely on one another for guidance and direction.
