Summary, etc.:
This thought-provoking documentary follows a young doctor and her decision to challenge anti-abortion laws by providing safe abortions on a ship in international waters. Though vehemently opposed by frenzied governments, public, and media, she transforms her wildly improbably idea into a global movement and model for dedication, resilience and the struggle for women's rights.
