Some Things Are Hard To Talk About is a personal documentary about the secrets of abortions in my family over three generations. An intricate story of family history, choices and resulting effects uncovers. In the middle of a relationship crisis I get pregnant again, and am confronted with a question I had asked myself ten years before: Will I keep the baby? Only this time, I know. But my boyfriend is hesitant and threatens that our relationship will not support another child. Never had I imagined that the abortion I had had ten years earlier would play a role in my life again.
