Jess Harris (Jasmine 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 (Chris Perfetti, “Looking”) and his husband Aaron (Sullivan 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.

USA, 2020, 93 minutes, Not Rated, Directed by Jeremy Hersh

  • “There are no movie-of-the-week histrionics here, and zero moralizing... just perceptive, thoroughly absorbing, granular adult drama based on difficult questions to which there are no right or wrong answers, let alone easy ones.”

  • “An indie drama that is almost all talk, and all of it good. [Jasmine] Batchelor makes us see, appreciate and feel every step in Jess’s deliberations…It’s a marvelous turn in a very smart movie.”

    – Roger Moore, MOVIE NATION
  • “One of the most thought-provoking movies centered about parenting released in recent memory—bar none.”

    – Jonathan Christian, THE PLAYLIST
  • “Riveting...a consistently provocative drama raising all kinds of issues.”

    – Stephen Saito, THE MOVEABLE FEST
  • “A wondrous achievement…insightful, daring and genuine in its approach to such a complicated topic.”

    – Aaron B. Peterson, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
