Women are made to bleed month after month. But this endless cycle of pain is also whatmakes us stronger, and what gives us our stories - Stories of growth, of discovery, pain, loss, acceptance and rebirth.
In O! we tell the stories behind why women bleed. We want to normalize women getting their periods, debunk myths about menstruation, and raise awareness about women who are facing stigma because of their periods. With 5 episodes set across 5 different countries, each episode revolves around a different genre, and a character of different ethnicity, as we explore current and important social issues, from a variety of perspectives, each tied to a newsworthy article. The episodes will be linked through the characters, with each episode fleshing out their relationships with their bodies, their reproductive systems, their “womanhood” and the people around them. Every episode expands the universe further, as the characters are connected through their narratives, across time and space. Their stories will intertwine and collide in small and big ways.
