Bangladesh has a high rate of infant mortality. There has been some effort to tackle this in urban areas; however, the problem persists rurally. This film explores why this is so and what could be done about it by telling the story of one trained Traditional Birth Attendant - Shibani Hajong who reveals the reasons why she decided to undergo training to modernise her practice.
