Clair (Frot) is a dedicated midwife struggling with life and work.  Not wanting to leave her old hospital and move to the new modern “baby factory” hospital is a struggle. Her personal life is no better, her son is leaving home with his new girlfriend and on top of that, her dead father’s former mistress Beatrice (Deneuve) turns up. She is the complete opposite of Clair eccentric, sensual, amoral the last person she needs.  But Beatrice soon informs her she is suffering a brain cancer and has no one else to turn to.  What is Clair to do?  Trivia – Catherine Frot actually delivered 5 babies during filming.
