One of the biggest discoveries in neuroscience is: When a person is born, it is not just a genetic load. We are formed by our genetics, combined with our relationship with everything around us. The Beginning of Life investigates what separates us and what is essential to all of us; how we can create a better society by investing in the first years of our children's lives.
The Beginning of Life is a film that shows the importance of the first years in the life of a child. Estela Renner interviews specialists in early childhood development and visits families with highly diverse cultural, ethnic and social backgrounds to show that an environment rich in love and protection during the early years of children’s lives is one of the best investments that can be made for humanity.
