Joy (Moss), a traditional 60’s American housewife, is desperate for a child. When she receives news of her pregnancy, complications mean that what should have been a joyous moment is instead an imminent threat to her life. She has nowhere to turn until she stumbles upon the Janes, an underground abortion movement led by Virginia (Sarandon). They save her life and give her a burning sense of purpose: to help other women take control of their destinies. This impassioned and uplifting account of women who fought to overturn oppression could not be timelier as women’s rights face renewed attacks in America and across the globe.
