The challenges of a young gay male couple who decide to have a baby are explored in this Australian melodrama set in the early 2000s. Hunky architect Alex wants a child while his partner, TV game show host, Steven is closeted at work and not all too keen on exposing himself to public scrutiny. Adding to the problem is the government's policy against same sex adoptions and their own, far from settled, home life. The decide to illegally hire a surrogate mother to carry the baby, but the woman, a bit homophobic, plots her own scheme to get more money from the two. [available in US and Canada]
