1 Hour 27 Minutes
On the outskirts of the capital of Chad, determined single mother Amina works tirelessly to provide for herself and her 15-year-old daughter Maria.
When Amina discovers Maria is pregnant and does not want a child, the two women begin to seek out an abortion, condemned by both religion and law. Fighting to procure this simple yet inaccessible procedure, they must navigate a patriarchal network of doctors, relatives, and neighbors. In the process, mother and daughter forge a connection stronger than any they've ever known.
