Summary

This film tells about parents' struggle with the life of a child whom others had written off even before he was born. It was unusual in the age of advanced prenatal diagnosis for a child to be born with such a fatal diagnosis, and so the pregnancy is almost always terminated. But the parents of this child decided otherwise – for his life. The feature-length documentary is the last work that was created in Febio and with which this studio ended its regular production of documentary work.
