Synopsis

A film centred around a decisive moment in the life and career of a young female surgeon. The operating room is ready. Lamps are switched on. The patient’s belly has been shaved and is lying ready to be operated. The surgeon hesitates; knife suspended over the patient’s skin. This moment brings back crucial events from the surgeon’s childhood which explain her career choice and reluctance to cut into the patients skin.
