The art of legislative deal-making becomes riveting political drama in The Law, a true story of extraordinary humanitarian, Jewish survivor of Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen, the first elected President of the European Parliament, Simone Veil. She is seen leading her “impossible” struggle as Health Minister in 1975 to legalize abortion on behalf of all French women suffering and dying from back-alley procedures.
