A little boy whose destiny was to die during his birth deeply moved everyone who came into contact with him. His parents learned of his diagnosis four months before his birth. In this autobiographical documentary, they let us take part in their personal process. They interviewed their companions through this extraordinary time of their lives: friends, doctors, midwives, therapists and grief counsellors. The mother‘s loving poems are accompagnied by the father‘ expressive images of nature which let us understand pregnancy in every fruit we see. BERÜHRT (DEEPLY MOVED) celebrates life in contemplation of death.
