A LITTLE GIRL who has had to fly to China for stem cell treatment is just one of the people whose story will be told on a new observational documentary set in Dublin airport.
Three-year-old Zara features in Dublin Airport: Life Stories, a six-part series which starts on TV3 at 9.30pm this evening. It chronicles the human dramas which unfold among the passengers and staff passing through the doors of the airport every day. Zara suffered a bleed on the brain while in her mother’s womb and is receiving stem cell treatment in China in the hope of alleviating the physical and intellectual challenges she has faced as a result.
Also featured in the documentary will be a grandfather who awaits to see his grandson for the first time and presenter Andrea Hayes speaks to the Shirley family, anxiously awaiting the return of their father from the US.
More than 22.7 million passengers passed through Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports last year – 18.7 million of those either arrived or departed from Dublin.
