    • Danny and his boyfriend Tate long to have a baby. When Danny’s mother (Ma) finds out about his plans, she is horrified by the idea of hiring a surrogate to carry her first awaited grandchild. Ma tries to stop Danny. However when she understands that he is determined, she starts to control every aspect of the process. The foursome (Danny, Tate, Ma and the surrogate) must travel thousands of miles to Bangkok for the embryo transfer. The emotionally exhausting journey inevitably pull Danny and Ma apart, as she still has unresolved issues about Danny being gay and the non-traditional family that they are starting.
