Sabine`s Nursery

A Film by Manuel Rees

Synopsis

Reborn Babies are lifelike dolls, that are nearly indistinguishable from real infants. Although Sabine Buncak’s sons are almost grown ups, yet she still holds on to their infancy and creates a dream reality with her own nursery and four Reborn Babies.
