synopsis

Birth is an essential act, but there are many ways to be born and many ways to accompany such an important moment in someone’s life. Some women choose to give birth in the most intimate space they know: at home. It is then that they are accompanied by other women: midwives.
Sofia is a midwife who discovered her calling at a very young age. She has been assisting births at home for thirty years.
We want to show the last birth that Sofia will assist. A unique experience, full of a symbolic value that aims to spur thought on the meaning of birth. In every case, it is a significant experience, a rite of passage and transition, a metaphor of life itself.
