An emotive look at a booming industry
In this eye-opening one-off film, Olympian Tom Daley and his screenwriter husband, Dustin Lance Black, explore the modern phenomenon of surrogacy. The couple are fathers themselves through surrogacy, part of a growing number of parents who choose this route, and it is through this filter of personal experience that they consider one of the most complex issues in modern society. From the UK, where it’s illegal to advertise for or pay surrogates except for reasonable expenses to California, where commercial surrogacy, complete with contracts between surrogates and want-to-be parents, is much more the norm, this is a deeply personal and intelligent film that addresses the factors that make surrogacy such a complicated subject.
