Andreas Johnsen, Denmark, 2009

52 min.DK/Documentary

In Nicaragua abortion in all it's forms is prohibited by law. Even if a pregnancy proves mortal to a woman, she would be imprisoned for opting a therapeutic abortion. This situation is the effect of a pact made between Nicaragua's president, the former socialist revolutionary, Daniel Ortega, and the powerful Catholic Church prior to the elections in 2006. "Murder" brings you face to face with the exposed women of Nicaragua and the courageous ones trying to fight the consequences of this political game of power.
