The Briefing

Audio Tracks 

A group of students must care for their first patients during a Medicinal Intern summercamp. The young adepts will have a short time to grow into fully fledged doctors and achieve their vocation. The film vividly portrays the experiences and the tempo of a physicians’ work – the pace is fast and every case is a unique one. Each of the students will have to try and find themselves amongst the chaos of reality, until one of them will have to meet the most difficult challenge one can face while practicing medicine.

The film is inspired by the ideas and tenets of Polish School of Documentary.
