WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In 1968, suburban housewife Joy (Banks) learns that her pregnancy is causing a life-threatening heart condition, but the all-male medical establishment declines to perform an emergency termination. She soon comes across activists Virginia (Weaver) and Gwen (Mosaku), who run an underground cause committed to giving women the health options they need, and is inspired to join their mission…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The inspirational – and sadly very relevant – tale of women’s fight to the right to their bodies forms the basis of this uplifting comedy-drama, from Oscar-nominated writer Phillys Nagy in her directional debut.
