With stunning in-the-womb photography and exquisitely rendered computer-animated graphics, this Oscar-nominated documentary short provides a remarkable overview of the nine-month human journey from conception to birth. Director Dr. Derek Bromhall traces life from zygote to fetus to baby, capturing on film everything from ovulation to ejaculation, fertilization and embryonic development. Viewers even catch a glimpse of the embryo's tiny beating heart.
