PETRIe is proud to present a Yohji Yamamoto feature film. The film was first featured inside PETRIe E-Magazine issue 4.

Very few women talk openly about their experiences of having an abortion, creating a silence that is often filled with myths and stereotypes. Feelings of shame, embarrassment and guilt often weigh upon those who go through it. Yet according to the World Health Organisation, every year in the world, there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This works out to be around 125,000 abortions per day.

The story in this film cannot be categorised into simple emotions. It is neither regret or acceptance. Instead, it is an attempt to face the many unspoken emotions faced by these women, helping to unburden their minds and break down these taboo topics of conversation.
