A baby is expected. Anticipated. Where is the head, where are the legs? But it’s different here – Kasia, who already has two kids and a career, must take a decision: her baby has Down’s syndrome. Nine out of ten women in Germany choose an abortion in this case. For Kasia, who is catholic, this is hard to accept – as hard as the option of having the baby. Razbezhkina student Anna Bedyńska follows the family over a period of six months, in a film that touches on the last taboo of our perfect society.
