Singing the Bones

Rated NR 88 minutes

Here are the stories of three generations of women, brought together by a single birth.. Meg, the midwife, is visited by haunting dreams just as she takes on a new client. The mother, pregnant with twins and scarred by past traumas at the hands of modern medicine, "absolutely wants a home birth". Dr. Sara Bienemann, the compassionate obstetrician from Europe whose "secrets are leaking from every pocket", warns of dangerous complications.

As tension escalates over the mother's choice to birth at home, Meg's dreams are haunted by images of another life. Dr. Sara, whose experience as a child survivor of The Holocaust is buried with the family she lost, sees her own mother in the face of the passionate midwife. On the night of the birth, the mother's choice, Dr. Sara's secret and Meg's dreams collide. In this window between the worlds of life and death, Dr. Sara's confrontation with the painful memories of her past opens her heart, and she creates the possibility of a miracle, of "something small" beginning to change in the world.
