The documentary is about Tatielle’s suffering, a young woman from Morrinhos, a town in Goiás state’s rural area. She was five months pregnant of a fetus that wouldn’t survive the delivery, when a judge authorized her to perform an abortion. A habeas corpus presented by a priestm who didn’t know Tatielle, stopped the medical procedure to interrupt the pregnancy. Tatielle was already feeling birth contractions when she was released from the hospital. Back to her city, Tatielle agonized for five days feeling the pains of a delivery that was prohibited by Religion, as well as the Justice system.
