Rosita captures what happens when a 9-year-old girl in Nicaragua is raped and seeks a therapeutic abortion. Latin American politics and the Catholic Church attempt to stop the daughter of two poor working classing campesinos.
This is more than just a story of an unlikely victor but highlights the international issue of abortion rights. Julissa Pena alongside members of Nagarote-Wesleyan Partnership, Amnesty International & Planned Parenthood of Southern New England will be giving an introduction and leading a post-screening discussion about the issues highlighted in the film.
