We went to the cinema to attend the festival of independent films and watched the drama “The Surrogate”.
It is a story that is possible in a liberal world. Jess, a young girl, decides to carry a baby for a couple of her friends. In New York, free surrogacy is allowed, which means that only medical expenses and food will be reimbursed to Jess. In addition, true surrogacy is allowed there – an arrangement when a woman gives birth to her biological child. By the way, this is the only type of surrogacy allowed in many Scandinavian countries and in China.
The conflict begins when the boys and Jess learn that the child will have Down syndrome. What decisions will each of them make and for what reasons?
