The women of Argentina continue fighting for the right to self-determined abortion. An estimated 350,000 illegal abortions are carried out in the country every year, which results in many women dying from what should be a routine procedure. Angry parents talk about the loss of young daughters and outraged women share horrific experiences between scenes of huge demonstrations. Stylish and striking LET IT BE LAW is a heartfelt documentary on the heated abortion debate in Argentina, which continues to gain global relevance.
