Inseparable best friends and cousins Autumn and Skylar precariously navigate the vulnerability of female adolescence in rural Pennsylvania. When Autumn mysteriously falls pregnant, she's confronted by conservative legislation without mercy for blue-collar women seeking an abortion. With Skylar's unfailing support and bold resourcefulness, money to fund the procedure is secured and the duo board a bus bound for New York state to find the help Autumn needs. Written by Mae Moreno

User Reviews

The definition of out of the box
23 June 2020 | by PaxtonMalloySee all my reviews

This astonishing movie brakes with every major rule of storytelling. There is no character arc no big obstacle to overcome no real conflict in the story or between the characters. The dialog is very flat the pacing very slow not twists and turns. But that is the brilliance of this movie. This is on purpose and it is ok to break rules in art in order to serve a purpose. It makes the story of Autumn extraordinary played by Sidney Flanigan totally believable. We are following her on her painful path and we feel like we what we are witnessing is real almost like a documentary. Talia Ryder playing her friend also gives such a breakout performance that there is no doubt in my mind she will go on to be huge star. The subtlety in both their performances make this not just a movie about teenage pregnancy but also a story of deep and meaningful friendship.
