There´s something I haven´t said

MEXICO / 10’/ 2K

In a café at a small town in México, three women break the silence and tell how, in the surprise of discovering that they are pregnant, they decide to interrupt it. Between heart breaks, violence, disagreements, medical indifference and double standard; Mariana, Carla and Adriana, reveal in an intimate way the w how they face their unwanted pregnancy. Making the decision to abort leads them to take a personal journey, rediscovering themselves, confronting their fears and finding their strength. Despite living in a Mexican society, which denies the right to decide over their own bodies, they choose not to be mothers.
