Katja and Isabella are a solid couple in their prime who longs to have a child together. But the journey towards pregnant is not as easy as they had thought. They must fight against both a discriminatory German system as well as their own notions of what motherhood is – and what price they are willing to pay for it. In an engaging and almost documentary fashion this drama portrays the challenges inherent in a lesbian couple’s dreams of motherhood. Short: A Danish surrogate mother and her reflections on giving birth to another couple’s child in Scandinavia.
“MIX Copenhagen is the oldest still running film festival in Denmark and one of the oldest LGBT film festivals in the world. We are a volunteer organization based completely on the passion of LGBT film aficionados who offer our spare time to make MIX Copenhagen a spectacular event not only for the LGBT community but for all of Copenhagen and beyond. We are therefore greatly dependent on and thankful for the support of the community, our sponsors and each and everyone who help us in any way with our mission; to present films that bend genders and break sexual boundaries, to stir up gender politics and reflect diversity.”
