An irresponsible, drug-addicted, recently impregnated woman finds herself in the middle of an abortion debate when both parties attempt to sway her to their respective sides.

Synopsis

Life, liberty, money and the pursuit of happiness. She's gotta have it.

Citizen Ruth is the story of Ruth Stoops, a woman who nobody even noticed - until she got pregnant. Now, everyone wants a piece of her. The film is a comedy about one woman caught in the ultimate tug-of-war: a clash of wild, noisy, ridiculous people that rapidly dissolves into a media circus.
