Angela Chadwick demonstrates the abilities that scientific advances afford through the decision of a lesbian couple to give birth to a child… ovum-to-ovum. Political and ethical questions sparring with fear-mongering and vitriol, Chadwick paints a picture not too distant from today.

 

How far would you go for a child of your own?

When Rosie and Jules discover a ground-breaking clinical trial that enables two women to have a female baby, they jump at the chance to make history.

Fear-mongering politicians and right-wing movements are quick to latch on to the controversies surrounding Ovum-to-Ovum (o-o) technology and stoke the fears of the public. What will happen to the numbers of little boys born? Is there a sinister conspiracy to eradicate men at play?

In this toxic political climate, Jules and Rosie try to hide their baby from scrutiny. But when the news of Rosie's pregnancy is leaked to the media, their relationship is put under a microscope and they're forced to question the loyalty of those closest to them, and battle against a tirade of hate that threatens to split them apart...
