A short film by queynte laydies
Directed by Clare Macdonald
Produced by Sally anne Badger
When Soph (Lou Sanders; 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, The Russell Howard Hour) and Wendy (Chrissy Ann-Randall; Night Shift, 50 Ways To Kill Your Lover) decide to complete their family, they ask Soph’s best and oldest friend, Max (Cian Barry; Doctor Foster, Shameless, Waking The Dead), to be their sperm donor.
It seems like a great idea, (aside from the minor worry that Max’s enormous head might be genetic). But the enormity of his gift begins to push the bounds of their lifelong friendship. As the pregnancy progresses, Soph starts to panic about her role in the family. With no biological connection, Soph feels her parental identity in question. Just what do you call a non-biological parent? How much will her child resemble Max? And does it really matter, when all you need is love…?
