Main shooting locations: Dushanbe, Tajikistan

Main sequences: Barno Salihova is bringing her three-month old daughter for a check up at a clinic in Dushanbe. Doctors report little Aziza is doing well.

Ms. Salihova has decided to raise Aziza differently than her two older daughters; she is exclusively breastfeeding Aziza for her first months of life. It is a critical nutritional advantage, especially in a country where recent winters have been unusually harsh, taking a toll on children.
