directed by Tomasz Śliwiński/
A mother and father face the difficulties of caring for a baby who has been born with a life-threatening congenital breathing disorder known as Ondine’s curse.
“A very well known Polish documentary director kept encouraging me; “Why don’t you try filming yourself?” My first reaction was no, it’s far too intimate and I don’t want to share what we’re going through with anyone. He said to me, “You don’t have to show it to anyone – why don’t you try?” So we did.”
