Ponijao, the Namibian baby girl
Mari, the baby girl living in Tokyo
Bayar, the Mongolian baby boy
Hattie, the baby girl living in San Francisco

A most unusual documentary in that there is no narration, no story line and very little music. As such we are left to make our own observations, to draw our own conclusions, to see things from our personal perspective.
