Synopsis

This high-stakes legal drama focuses on Bei Bei Shuai, a depressed, pregnant Chinese immigrant who is put on trial for the murder of her unborn child after attempting suicide. The case captivates the nation as it sets a disturbing legal precedent for women who terminate their pregnancies whether intentionally or not, shining a light on the ongoing encroachment of women’s rights and the confluence of religious belief and medical practice.
