On The Divide

ON THE DIVIDE follows the stories of three Latinx people living in McAllen, Texas, who, despite their conflicting views, are connected by the most unexpected of places: the last abortion clinic on the U.S./Mexico border. Despite their pro-life or pro-choice views, Mercedes, Rey and Denisse do not fit neatly on either side of the abortion debate, and their stories reveal that the issue is not as black and white as it might seem. As threats to the clinic and their personal safety mount, these three are forced to make decisions they never could have imagined. ON THE DIVIDE goes beyond the clinic walls to explore the complex stories of those who have an unlikely stake in the issues surrounding abortion. In a community lacking healthcare options, what does it mean to go against your beliefs in order to survive?
