DIRECTOR: Dawn Porter
From 2011 to 2013, hundreds of regulations were passed restricting access to abortion in America. Reproductive rights advocates refer to these as "TRAP" laws, or Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers. In this feature length character driven film, our main characters fight alongside a dedicated cadre of attorneys to preserve abortion rights in a country living with the mistaken belief that Roe v. Wade still protects a woman's right to choose.
Porter deftly presents statistics, graphs, and background information. But she also shows the intimate, inspiring, and sometimes heartbreaking day-to-day drama of the dedicated staff and owners of the clinics.Peter Keough, Boston Globe
