Based on true stories, Three Families is a compelling and emotional two-part drama, which compassionately explores the personal stories of three families affected by the controversial campaign that culminated in the UK government forcing a liberalisation of the law in Northern Ireland. A mother faces prison for trying to help her pregnant teenage daughter. Two young newlyweds learn that their much-wanted first child will die of a fatal foetal abnormality. If they lived in England, Wales or Scotland, both families could seek a legal termination. But this is Northern Ireland, where abortion laws have been among the most restrictive in Europe.
