This is very real situation that has happened many times on our country. Since 1989, a few months before the end of the Chilean dictatorship, it was stated that therapeutic abortion would be considered illegal, not even when the life of the mother is in danger.
The realism is very important on this film which is why the story is based on lives of many real people, and it also shows how politics and religion get involved on a subject like this. Yet the movie is not a drama, but a thriller that states how this is not only an attempt against human rights, but also a situation that always leads to a violent resolution.
