WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Jess (Batchelor), a young web designer, agrees to be a surrogate and egg-doner for her best friend Josh (Perfetti) and his husband Aaron (Jones). However, ten weeks into the pregnancy, a prenatal test comes back with surprising results, forcing Jess to confront a severe moral dilemma…
