This is a look at Lizz Winstead (co-creator The Daily Show) and her team of activists from Abortion Access Front as they crisscross the country attempting to keep abortion legal across the country. The film begins on the night before  arguments were made in the supreme court in the case the ended Roe and follows them in the weeks and moths that follow.

A very good, very funny polemic that works very hard to make certain we all understand that women have the right to control their bodies and their lives.  It’s wonderful time with some very funny and very smart people who argue their side clearly and succinctly.

I laughed my way from start to finish and felt called to step up.

The problem with the film, and it’s problem that the film had from the moment it was conceived, and that this film is very much a film for the converted. As good and as funny as the film is the film is almost certainly never going to be watched by anyone dead set against women controlling their own lives.  Actually the film is more likely to be picketed or burned.   Of course the mere  fact that the film exists is hopeful since there is a very good chance that it could get out to people on the fence and change some minds.
