Keely and Du
by Jane Martin
Directed by Rick Wright

Keely, a pregnant rape victim planning an abortion, awakes in a locked room with no memory of how she got there. She learns from her elderly companion, Du, that she has been kidnapped by a pro-life group intent on forcing Keely to have her baby. What unveils is a beautiful character piece about the ongoing abortion dispute in America.

PARENTAL ADVISORY: This show is intended for mature audiences only.
