From animals in group therapy to the banalities of everyday life: Nerves are tested in the second section of the competition. Sometimes it just all gets too much and there is only one thing you can do: go completely crazy. Control, and the loss of it, also is the central issue in the life of an anorexic woman who offers us insights into her troubled mind. Accompanied by the sound of Vietnamese blues we explore the narrow streets of old Hanoi, and together with three women we reflect on the methods of modern reproductive medicine. A programme that gets to the core of life.
