Director’s statement

“People asked me, why make this movie now, when abortion is legal in France? Because what happened in France is still unfortunately the case in many countries. And while I was making the film, I learned what was happening in Texas, where they were challenging Roe v Wade, and then people’s reactions changed completely. They started saying it was good to make this film now, that it was necessary.” (by an interview for The Guardian)
