What is the definition of a contemporary family? Who make the best parents? what are the implications of recent advances in biology and how will these affect the ways human beings choose to reproduce? These questions and many others are examined through the experience of the filmmakers James Dowell and John Kolomvakis as they proceed through the process of surrogacy and family building ultimately ending in their twin sons. The specific history that lead to this desirefor family is explored through the filmmakers' life experience and the viewer is offered a window onto the changing social mores of the last half century.
