In "Ganap na Babae” three stories are interwoven to see the plight of Filipino women from the sensitive eyes of three contemporary women directors. A woman (Mercedes Cabral) shares her soul as a prostitute in front of the camera. A survivor, she looks back at her life as a mother. Milagros (Sue Prado) and Elena (Jam PĂ©rez) are sisters tilling “camote” (sweet potato) in a dry land. Poverty provokes Elena to migrate as a mail-order bride in Japan while Milagros stays to take care of the family. Eos (Boots Anson Roa) is a widow who falls in love with a younger man, Rodrigo (Rome Mallari). They try to make the relationship work amidst the pressure of their family and the society.

The film is written and directed by Rica Arevalo, Ellen Ramos, and Sarah Roxas. "Ina" story is based on Mike Portes' Minsan may Isang Puta. Cinematography by Gym Lumbera and Myk Manalastas. Editing by Ellen Ramos. Music Score by Bob Aves, and sound by Angie Reyes. "Ganap na Babae" is producered by Joan T. Manalang, Ida Tiongson, Medwin Garcia, George K.
