Synopsis

Every year, thousands of students – mostly female – embark upon courses that will lead them to become nurses. Enrolled in Nursing Training Institutes, they will spend their time between lectures, practical exercises and internships. A difficult process during which they will have to acquire a great deal of knowledge, master numerous technical procedures and prepare themselves for heavy responsibilities. This film follows the ups and downs of an apprenticeship that will confront them, often at a young age, with human fragility, suffering, illness, the flaws in souls and bodies. It therefore talks about us all, about our humanity.
