*Post-film Q & A with Director Diana Whitten

Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, horrified by the effects on women’s health by anti-abortion laws, sails around the world, providing health services at sea for women with no legal alternative. In the face of governmental, religious, and military blockades, Dr. Gomperts bypasses international law and creates an underground network of emboldened, informed activists.
