About Below the Belt – In the personal & inspiring stories of four patients urgently searching for answers to mysterious symptoms, the film exposes widespread problems in our healthcare systems.
Through the lens of endometriosis, a disease that affects 1 in 9 women, Below the Belt shows how women are often dismissed, discounted & disbelieved. From societal taboos and gender bias to misinformed doctors and profit-driven healthcare, the film reveals how millions are silenced and how, by fighting back, we can improve healthcare for everyone.

Sharing glimpses of life before prison, crucial moments of choice, life inside and their hopes for the future, the play creates a tapestry of lived experience.
