"I will literally give 3 ribs to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg if she needs them, along with whichever other body parts she requires until 2020", said activist and WaPo contributor Holly Figueroa O'Reilly. She also battled cancer twice and got a stent in 2014 to open a blocked artery.

In the interview, she spoke about being close friends with the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia despite having different political views. The feature film is about a landmark Supreme Court case in which Ms Ginsburg argued for fathers' rights and against gender discrimination.
