NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE | Across the European Union, access to abortion, IVF and euthanasia is unequal. However, with open borders for residents, medical tourism is on the rise giving way to harsh emotional journeys. By meeting with those who experience these travels and many of their opponents, the film opens a reflection on bodily autonomy in a continent where Christian heritage and conservatism are obstacles to the freedom of choice and at a time when scientific knowledge has pushed further humanity’s power over life and death.
