Using imagery of exquisite intimacy, this short film dispels the myth that pregnancy and eroticism are mutually exclusive. The camera, shooting mainly in close-up, celebrates the glorious ripeness of a very pregnant woman. Heartbeats mixes suspense, sex, tenderness and humour to construct an insightful exposé into a very modern love affair.

This film contains scenes of nudity and/or sexuality. Viewer discretion is advised.
