The Screen Guide

Belinda Wardlaw Jones is one of the few women in Australia to be born with a rare form of muscular dystrophy, an incurable muscle-wasting disease which can drastically reduce life expectancy. Despite her condition and against the advice of many, she and her husband Andrew decide to have a child. Belinda defends her decision to proceed with this pregnancy, believing it to be her right to become a mother, whatever the medical risks and the ultimate social costs may be.
