In 2009 President Bai Koroma announced that Sierra Leone would deliver free health care to mothers and children under five by April 2010. Examining the reality of putting his policy into practice is at the core of this powerful fly-on-the-wall film, shot during a Mother and Child Healthcare week. Here a simple syringe is a rare commodity, and though poverty, ignorance and laissez-faire attitudes abound, two people struggle to make the difference. Against the backdrop of a regional war still acutely felt, the odds are stacked against them. Beautifully shot and sensitively edited, the film doesn’t take sides or point fingers, but rather underlines the bitter struggle in Sierra Leone to lower the
astonishingly high mortality rates of both mothers and infants.

Genre: Documentary
Directed by: Miki Redelinghuys, Kyle O'Donoghue
