Even though the clinic and its founder, Amy Hagstrom Miller, successfully challenged provisions of 2013's anti-choice House Bill 2 at the U.S. Supreme Court, the Whole Woman's Health flagship location in Austin (there are six others in the network) had to close during the legal fight. Hagstrom Miller managed to hold on to the leased space by way of dogged fundraising and her own cash, converting it into a co-working office for progressive organizations before officially reopening in 2017 ("Whole Woman's Health Reopens," May 19, 2017).

In a great central performance, Trine Dyrholm plays a lawyer who represents rape and family-abuse victims, and is the second wife of a doctor (Magnus Krepper) who has a delinquent son (Gustav Lindh) by his first marriage.
