The story of health workers in Ethiopia, Cambodia and Haiti, Sister offers a revealing portrait of people whose daily work is to help women give birth in an atmosphere of low prenatal care and high maternal and child mortality. The filmmaker follows a Haitian midwife, a former freedom fighter in Ethiopia and a rural midwife who performs miracles in a heavily land-mined area in Cambodia. This inspiring film provides a strong lesson in hope and determination.
