This moving portrait of Semmelweis Maternity Clinic in Vienna gives a fascinating insight into the drama, the pain and the beauty of coming into the world. Using the techniques of Direct Cinema, the everyday miracle of birth is shown in all its variety and intensity, against the backdrop of the accompanying cycle of hospital processes. A chronicle of the beginning of life – and how it happens.
