The Roe Effect

 

SYNOPSIS:
In a world frighteningly similar to our own, Dawn (Nia Fairweather) and her girlfriend Sam (Cher Santiago) are madly in love. But unbeknownst to Sam, Dawn is hiding a terrible secret, one powerful enough to destroy all Dawn holds dear. In this heart-wrenching tale of love and loss, Dawn must choose between exposing a painful truth and losing the girl she loves.
