"Propelled by a performance of stunning psychological insight."--David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

"A rare gem...from a new director and a new performer whose collaborative efforts have fashioned a film as thought provoking as it is moving."--Nicholas Bell, IONCINEMA

Jess Harris (Batchelor, THE GOOD FIGHT), a 29 year old web designer for a nonprofit in Brooklyn, is ecstatic to be the surrogate and egg-donor for her best friend Josh ( Perfetti, LOOKING) and his husband Aaron (Jones, SLAVE PLAY). Twelve weeks into the pregnancy, a prenatal test comes back with unexpected results that pose a moral dilemma. As they all consider the best course of action, the relationship between the three friends is put to the test. (Description courtesy of Visit Films)
