Written by Emma Findlay
Directed by Mairi Davidson

Suitable for Age 16+

Much Taboo About Nothing tackles the taboo of abortion through the eyes of LUCY and JORDAN, a young couple who are very much “in love” until Lucy discovers that she is pregnant.

Is having an abortion wrong, selfish and cruel? Should we ever sacrifice what we want to please another? If you love someone you should tell them, but sometimes loving someone means letting them go.
