Saint Peter's Infirmary in the Marollen district of Brussels is no ordinary hospital. The people who come here for treatment live on the edge of society: the homeless, illegal immigrants, refugees, the elderly. Their medical insurance and papers are not in order. They often come with health problems when it is too late. The staff at Saint Peter's find it difficult to handle these often aggressive people. But this hospital turns no one away. This is a film without interviews. Images and conversations speak for themselves. A typical scene is that of the feeble old man who is about to be discharged. The old man is in no state to look after himself. But there is no-one he can turn to. He has no roof over his head but will not entertain the idea of an old people's home. He is just one of the many tragic cases portrayed in this moving film.
