Synopsis

As a struggling artist, Honda-riding out-lesbian living with her white girlfriend, Reena feels she has nothing on her older married do-perfect sister Sarita - except her ovaries, that is. When Sarita and her husband discover that they cannot have children, Reena offers to serve as a surrogate mother. Trying to convince her girlfriend, Lisa (Jill Hennessey), that they can do this together is just the start of Reena's problems. Soon enough, Reena's family and friends pull away convinced that Reena's decision is a bad one.
