Dramatisation of three real-life stories of how three families were each affected by Northern Ireland's restrictive abortion law before it was lifted in 2019.

  • 1. Episode 1
    A mother realises she could face a prison sentence for helping her teenage daughter to get an abortion, while a newlywed discovers her unborn baby will not survive to the end of her pregnancy – but also that she will legally still have to carry the child to term.
  • 2. Episode 2
    Determined to change the law, Hannah (Amy James-Kelly) throws herself into campaigning. Her fight brings victory in the High Court, which soon turns to frustration with the political powers at Stormont.

    Meanwhile, first-time older mother Rosie (Genevieve O’Reilly) discovers there is no legal remedy to the heartbreaking complications with her pregnancy.

    Theresa (Sinéad Keenan) learns her trial date, but she still hasn’t told Orla (Lola Petticrew) that she’s facing prison for what they did. When Orla discovers the truth she insists on supporting her mother to challenge the prosecution.
