Inhalt

Long Journey Into the Light
Edeltraut Hertel brings children to the world. For some 20 years, she has been working as a midwife in her hometown of Meerane, a sleepy small town near Chemnitz. In this Saxon province, tucked away from the focus of the world, a war is taking place among numerous health policy representatives. The film brings to light the problems of modern day society, affected by migration and declining birth rates. In this small micro-cosmos, rivaling sides are fighting to win the favor of the offspring of this small town: technically-equipped hospital doctors, alternative and relaxed "birthing house" representatives, and experienced midwives.

With a sense for bizarre humor and pointed remarks, "Long Journey Into the Light" tells the story of this hunt for lost treasures.
