A look at the impact of Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (TRAP) laws in the southern United States, and their disproportionate effect on women living in poverty. Trapped follows the physicians, staff, and patients of abortion clinics in Alabama and Mississippi as they struggle to remain open in an increasingly hostile legal and political climate. The film follows clinic owners June Ayers, and Diane Derzis and Dr. Willie Parker, one of only a few doctors courageous enough to perform abortions in the Deep South.
