For co-directors Maya Cueva and Leah Galant, the abortion debate in America had become a contentious issue that was being argued from echo chambers on both sides of the aisle. Cueva and Galant wanted to make a documentary on the subject while challenging the ideas about what it means to have a stake in reproductive rights and showing audiences that abortion wasn’t simply a question of right and wrong.To do this, Cueva and Galant traveled to McAllen, home of the last abortion clinic on the U.S.-Mexico border, in 2014 to tell the stories of some of the people impacted by the sensitive issue.
