Write a short summary of what happens in the film

In this film we follow the dramatic birth of a baby and the strains that the mother goes through. We follow the baby's journey from when the labor starts, through the water breaking and the birth itself. For a few seconds the baby's life is hanging by a thread, and the mother thinks she will lose her baby. But thanks to the effort of Doctors Without Borders, the baby comes back to life, and the mother and her child is united.

Cultural / Context information for the jury

For many of us in the privileged world, a birth is rarely a matter of life and death. But in the places where Doctors Without Borders operate, death is high risk at any birth. Actually it is so common that every 30 seconds a mother loses her child during labour, because of bad access to the right care.
