Forty years after Roe v. Wade, abortion remains a divisive and incendiary national debate. In the aftermath of Dr. George Tiller’s assassination in 2009, only four physicians in the US continue to perform third trimester abortions, each plagued by constant death threats, protests, and legal battles—all for their steadfast commitment to women’s rights. Filmmaking duo Shane and Wilson bring us this intimate portrait of the intrepid practitioners as they grapple with the ethics that permeate their personal and professional lives. Winner of the Documentary Jury Prize at Sarasota Film Festival.
