Their ranks are shrinking rapidly. With violence against abortion providers steadily increasing, three abortion providers are forced to evaluate the obstacles that impede their job, safety, and health every day. “On Hostile Ground” documents their struggles without the help of a narrator; their stories are intertwined seamlessly. By weaving together three very different character portraits, “On Hostile Ground” takes an unique approach to a volatile social conflict, portraying abortion through the personal stories of those who are in mortal danger because they provide the service.
