34-year-old server Bridget (intimately played by writer Kelly O’Sullivan) finally manages to catch a break when she meets an actual nice guy, and lands a job nannying rambunctious six-year-old Frances. But after discovering an unwanted pregnancy and subsequently hurrying an abortion, Bridget begins to butt heads with the obstinate Frances.

Raw, bitingly witty, and unapologetic, Saint Frances approaches head on issues that women face every day: periods, post-partum depression, unwanted pregnancy, and body policing, treating them as the human occurrences they are and smashing taboos that have permeated for decades.

To call Saint Frances refreshing is an understatement; Kelly O’Sullivan and director/partner Alex Thompson have crafted an unflinching study of the expectations of womanhood, adult relationships, and the highs and lows of becoming entangled within someone else’s family.
