A searing, Kafkaesque drama about the criminalization of abortion. After her transcontinental flight is diverted to Dallas, Nessa inexplicably finds herself trapped in a room with Val, a lawyer for the state. Nessa just wants to leave on the next plane, but this is Texas. New abortion laws prohibit Nessa from leaving the state until after she gives birth, even though both women know the fetus is deceased and Nessa's life is in danger. Can Val be persuaded to go against her convictions, putting her own career on the line in order to help Nessa escape?
