Despite being an essential biological function for half of all humans, the stigma attached to menstruation persists. A wide range of women – athletes, activists, movie stars, doctors, journalists, and ordinary people – share their experiences and insights. Looking at the science, politics, and social customs associated with the period, the film aims to expand knowledge and change attitudes.
