Honest and revealing about a "taboo" subject
29 December 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Many of us have trouble knowing what it must be like for our friends or relatives who have lost a baby near birth. It's hard to know what to say or how to act. This Aussie-made documentary sheds instructive light on the subject. I'm grateful for this mother's honesty.
