How far would you go to protect your rights?

Set in the not-too-distant future, four women attend a feminine wellness retreat in hopes of finding solace, empowerment, and solidarity in a world increasingly hostile to females. But once there, they discover that freedom may not mean the same thing to all of them and they may not be willing to pay the price of clawing back political power. This timely satire explores a possible reaction to the rolling back of reproductive rights and its inevitable backlash.
