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.
