Smut


Synopsis

The Gilded Age in Old New York. The architect of repression has outlawed abortion, contraception, books. Three women – a reformer, an immigrant, a wife – dare to defy him. Inspired by the real-life collision of sexual educator, Ida Craddock – and America’s national censor, Anthony Comstock. When one man decides what the laws should be, liberties are trampled, voices are silenced. There is no choice.
