The anaesthetist Wira Primakova heads the intensive care unit of the Okhmatdyt Children's Hospital in Lviv, western Ukraine. It is early March: Her husband is fighting on the front line while Wira is fighting for the lives of two premature babies evacuated from Kiev in critical condition. Over the course of a year, Carl Gierstorfer's documentary follows a doctor and mother who becomes increasingly desperate to protect her little patients and family from the brutal reality of war.
Editor's note
Carl Gierstorfer, author of the award-winning documentary series "Charité Intensiv: Station 43", shows the viewer the war in Ukraine from the perspective of a paediatrician. The result is the diary of a doctor and mother who, like so many women, struggles for survival and a future.
