Movie Info

In a country where once in seven women dies during childbirth, a filmmaker whose compassionate father works in women's medicine strives to provide optimism and hope to patients who endure their debilitating illnesses with remarkable courage. Sedika Mojadidi's father once worked in Kabul's Laura Bush Maternity Ward - where scare medical supplies, outdated equipment, and even clogged toilets rendered virtually impossible the proper care of his patents. When Mojadidi travels to a modest, but newly erected hospital in the Ghazni region to follow his father's career, however, he soon discovers that despite the lack of an experienced medical staff and a desperate need for training, women are willing to travel for days to receive treatment in what has come to be known as a nurturing and caring environment.
