Joy (Elizabeth Banks), a "traditional" 60's housewife, is excited to welcome her second child. However, the news of her pregnancy is tainted by the threat it poses to her own life. She has nowhere to turn, until she stumbles upon The Janes, an underground group of ordinary women, united by Virginia (Sigourney Weaver).
The Janes risk everything to provide people like Joy with choices, and they ultimately leave Joy with a burning sense of purpose: to help other women control their own bodies.
From director Phyllis Nagy, CALL JANE is a timely look at the hard fought battle American women fought to gain control over their own bodies. And as the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade proves, the battle rages on.
