When Angela Creighton finds a mysterious letter containing a poignant confession, she becomes obsessed with finding the letter’s recipient. Her research takes her back to the 1970s, when a group of brave women ran an underground abortion movement in Toronto, Canada. They used code words, and if a woman needed help, all she had to do was “ask for Jane.”
In parallel with Angela’s discoveries, we can follow two women – Evelyn and Nancy – several decades ago. Their lives were deeply affected by politics and women’s health in the 1970s, when abortion was illegal, but still a part of many women’s lives.
