Known Trivia

    Goofs: Factual errors: The baby's health parameters on the monitor can be seen during nearly the whole film. It shows the blood pressure is 120/80 and the pulse rate is 72, which are good parameters only for an average adult person. A newborn's physiological parameters for blood pressure is approximately 75/50 and the baby's pulse should be way over 100, approximately 140. Especially in this case, where the baby is considered a premature infant.

    Plot: A father struggles to keep his infant daughter alive in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Full summary » |  »

    Story: In New Orleans just before Hurricane Katrina hits, a pregnant woman gives birth prematurely. She dies and her baby is in critical condition. The baby has to be kept in a neonatal incubator. When the hurricane strikes, all the power goes out and everyone in the hospital leaves. But the baby’s father stays because the baby can’t be moved so he has to take care of his baby by making sure the ventilator stays on. And because there’s no power, the only power source is generator that he has to crank every few minutes. So he has to stay awake while waiting for someone to come for them.
