CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
7 - 9 SEPTEMBER
The trauma of late stage complications in pregnancy is unimaginable to most of us, but when Elin is faced with this devastating news, she is fortunate to have her friend Sara by her side. When it comes to the termination itself, it is Sara who administers the drugs that will induce the labour of Elin’s supposedly still born baby girl. Avril is the midwife attending the birth, but when she believes she sees the baby take one last breath after she is born - the Butterfly Breath - she is faced with an ethical and professional dilemma. To tell or not to tell. The repercussions of her decision will reverberate through their lives forever.
