Twins Eden and Léandro were born prematurely. Once out of the belly of their mother, they are propelled into the hostile and worrying world of the hospital. The familiy lives to the rhythm of the twins, caught between the hope for improvement and the ever-present fear of death. Together, they fight fiercely for life.
As the weeks pass in the neonatal service, mother and children fight for survival. Haemorrhages, respiratory problems… Surrounded by the medical team, Laurence lives to the rhythm of the twins, caught between the hope for improvement, fatigue, the ever-present possibility that things will go wrong and the fear they will die. The bond between mother and children is organic, vital.
