Production MFA Film Candidate Karin Lee’s Controversial TV Pilot – “Plan b”

event_plan_b_2014“Plan b” expands our awareness on and explores the fragility of choice and freedom of speech. The main character, Ruby Harper (Julia Benson), lands a job as an abortion clinic counselor. Pro-life protesters find a willing citizen to convert in the seventeen year old boyfriend of thirteen year old Alannah (Niki Wipf) who must make a serious decision about her pregnancy. The series is politically relevant, touching, funny, and is a tribute to all those who care for, support, and want women to be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their lives.
