Forced to seek help in a country where abortion is criminalised, she becomes the target of a fundamentalist group determined to stop her at any cost. Luckily neither Sofia nor her boundlessly loving father and fiercely loyal teammates are willing to surrender to the blind fervour of the swarm.

This screening is followed by a discussion with filmmaker Lillah Halla via Zoom.

This film is in Portuguese and Spanish with English subtitles.
Content warning: depictions of violence, strong language, nudity, and reference to abortion.

A compelling story that could happen to anyone in Brazil, or even in other countries, where there is no access to abortion.
Regina Tamés, Deputy Director, Women's Rights Division, Human Rights Watch
