De Chaque InstantNicolas Philibert
Every year, tens of thousands of young people start a nursing study. An intensive and difficult course, in which they not only gain a lot of knowledge and learn technical actions, but also prepare for great responsibilities. A moving confrontation that does not shy away from human fragility.
Ambition and idealism go hand in hand. The students at the "Institute for Nursing" are dedicating their lives to vulnerable bodies that need care and knowledge. A learning process with many highs and lows. From a young age they are confronted with human frailty, illness, suffering, wounded souls and fragile bodies. Precise actions are part of a strict procedure because the devil is often in the details. In this way they learn that disinfecting is a matter of life and death in a room where it is teeming with sick people. From a kind perspective we follow the youngsters in their practice sessions. A document that talks about us, and our humanity. A simple, humble and curious narrative about people we can describe as heroes.
