Ours to Tell
Without shame and without fear “Ours to Tell” depicts four people who share their stories and walk in their truth. By owning the lives they choose what unfolds is an unfiltered and poetic demonstration of how the right to access abortion acts as a dynamic turning point in an individual’s journey to freedom and self love. Each with different perspectives and experiences, the film’s subjects — Brittany, Hannah, Nick and Ylonda — take us inside their worlds, their families, their souls and boldly illustrate the beauty and power of bodily autonomy. As we watch, listen and love each storyteller we also bear witness to a chilling reality: The fundamental freedom to own our body and future has never been more uncertain than it is today.
