Tracing the social, cultural and political journey to repeal the 8th amendment; the constitutional ban on abortion, The 8th is an insightful documentary that charts a battle for change and reform. While making its position clear from the outset, this film features voices from both sides of the debate and a rich historical context that considers the past failures that brought the issue to the fore. An inspiring story of grassroots activism that is still relevant three years on.  

Contains references to sexual violence and suicide as well as strong language.
