13m | United States | Coming Soon 


In the afterglow of their happy occasion, a newlywed couple encounters a painful truth on their wedding night that

puts their future together in peril.



A Woman's Body is an intimate portrait that explores the resilience of love in the face of adversity. The film delves into the journey of young newlyweds Jolene and Clyde, who on their wedding night, joyously celebrate the beginning of their life together as husband and wife. However, their marital bliss is cut short by a distressing truth about Jolene's body that has been kept secret from Clyde. With the weight of this challenge upon them, the newlyweds are forced to confront their fears and insecurities, which are deeply rooted in the purity culture and the religious beliefs they were raised in. 


Will Jolene and Clyde's love prove strong enough to weather the storm? Or will the truth prove too strong for their marriage to bear? Only time will tell, for the newlyweds must first learn the true meaning of love, and ultimately, find a way to move forward with trust and forgiveness as their guiding principles. 


A Woman’s Body is a timeless love story that is not only about a couple’s struggles but also about the sensitive issues surrounding Women's Sexual and Reproductive Health.
