Five-year-old Myriam Wittmann suffers from kidney-failure and is awaiting a kidney transplant. Meanwhile, she goes through a therapy called peritoneal dialysis: instead of spending days in the hospital with traditional dialysis, this treatment is administered at home by her parents. Every night, Myriam is being hooked up to a long tube that delivers a dialysis solution inside her belly. The next morning, the old solution, carrying all the body's wastes is removed. On one hand, the process is liberating, sparing the child from regular trips to the hospital. On the other hand, it requires a huge amount of commitment from the parents.
