Abby is a teenager. She is bright, smart, and has a whole future ahead of her. One day, while standing in a public toilet with her best friend, she discovers she’s pregnant.

What does she do now?

With her whole life ahead of her, Abby has made her decision – on what to do and who not to tell.

When we are caught in a situation we are ashamed, embarrassed, or disappointed about, sometimes we just want to keep it to ourselves and deal with it in our own way. Opening up to someone can be difficult because it also means being honest with ourselves.

And so, Abby decides not to mention the whole situation to her parents, wanting to avoid disappointing her mother and believing that she’s old enough to handle it on her own.

However, she soon realizes that things are not as simple as they seem.

This film ‘Abby’ demonstrates how confronting our emotions and leaning on others for support is important. Everyone makes mistakes, albeit to different degrees, but regardless, what matters most is how we respond.
