  • Hendrik Schäfer


We closely accompany an Israeli gay couple, Motty and Alon, on their journey to have biological twins through their gestational surrogate, Krista, from Oregon/USA. For a period of one year, we look into the couple’s daily lives in Israel. We observe how they cope with the financial, medical, social and religious issues Israel’s reality poses them on their quest for fatherhood. Through their closely observed personal story, the film raises questions about parenthood, social norms, the Israeli gay baby boom and the zeitgeist of our technologically advanced world.
