UK Premiere

Young women are taking medical advice in a public hospital in Argentina. This is the place where pregnant teenage girls have to make a decision, to keep the child or to have an abortion. The hospital gynecologists and other members of the staff help them, one case at a time. In these intimate and non-judgmental conversations, the young women, fragile and vulnerable, take this precious time to think and talk. The film takes a delicate approach to the status of women.
