The Surrogate

The Surrogate

Jess Harris, 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 and his husband Aaron. Twelve weeks into the pregnancy, a test for Down Syndrome comes back positive. As they consider whether to terminate the pregnancy, the relationship between the three friends is put to the test.
