Most of the conversations surrounding abortion assume that women seek the medical procedure only when their pregnancies are unplanned. Leena Pendharkar’s new film, “20 Weeks,” focuses on another reproductive rights narrative: one that is too often ignored by the media and lawmakers alike.
“20 Weeks” centers on Maya (Anna Margaret Hollyman) and Ronan (Amir Arison), a happy couple expecting their first baby. As the film’s trailer shows, they’re excited at Maya’s 20-week ultrasound.

Maya and Ronan realize that they will have to make a difficult decision. There’s an issue with the baby — something that will threaten its quality of life once it’s born.
