Freezing night in the middle of the mountain. A peasant girl of barely eight years, will be the only companion of his mother who is about to give birth. Together they will embark on the road to the hospital on foot. Increasingly violent contractions have halted the advance of the women in full route, and it will be the girl who must travel, alone, those 12 kilometers that separates her from the nearest town in search of help.
