Three stories of women in the film Unseen are complemented by three births. Through them, we are given the space to immerse ourselves into the birthing reality in Slovakia and Denmark, and to understand the events that Melody, Stella, and Lucia have faced.

We see the need to create a space for change and to preserve a woman’s fundamental human rights.
