THE SHIFT Séries 1

6 Épisodes Drama

Ella is the head of a Danish maternity ward. Just as others devote their lives to the church, she is all-consumed by her vocation as a midwife. She has no children and her lover is also her colleague. The Shift depicts the daily life of the department, a hub of activity in which staff, parents and babies intermingle against the cacophonous backdrop of giving birth. This more subtle rendering of the great medical show tradition tells the unique tale of the maternity ward, where medicine meets the astonishing magic (and pain) of birth. Sofie Gråbøl (who starred as the unforgettable inspector in The Killing) lends quiet determination to her character.
