A very determined woman is about to have an abortion at a clinic. But while in the operating room, the power trips and the lights go out. This is seen through a narrow slice of time — abortion — a traumatic event for any woman, in any circumstances.
But it’s not just about abortion.
Stuck together in a room, the politics and morality of abortion are not in view, their exchange becomes a short but important story about life’s choices.
In the dim of the emergency lights, the patient gets a conversation going with her doctor.
Their is cut short when the lights come back on.
They’re both enlightened by the experience — sometimes you make choices in life, sometimes the choices make you.
