In the moments preceding the birth of a child, there are words no parent wants to hear: "no heartbeat". 

In this documentary health professionals open the door to their day-to-day experiences and their own emotional response to circumstances that touch them as well. Mothers, fathers, and support associations also share with the viewers their personal stories, and the resources they turn to in trying to ease that pain. No heartbeat reveals the dehumanization associated with this sort of death, which occurs when new life was just on the horizon.
