An intimate couple’s portrait follows my pregnancy from it’s very beginning. At 21 weeks we are told that our baby may have a serious disorder. We receive medical opinions and struggle to make a decision, until we do. Between a simple dream of having a baby and us hitting the shore of reality, hard, a film was born.
