Stoles back into the infinite ocean. The mold may not recognize the language. Pictures without a source A set of memories that still existed in the dim fuzzy. If you are in the clear.

A drama based on the director's experience of coming to terms with multiple sclerosis. 'A Prayer Before Birth' chronicles, with disturbing intensity, the physical and emotional traumas of a young woman's journey from able-bodied exuberance to the acceptance of disability.

Confronts debilitating illness with creative vitality, simultaneously desperate and defiant.
