TWO MOTHERS (ZWEI MÜTTER)

TWO MOTHERS

When Katja and Isabella, happily married, decide to have a child, they are confronted with unexpected obstacles: most of the fertility clinics don't offer treatment for homosexual couples. After months of wearing and pricey procedures in one that does, they find a trader who sells utilities for an insemination at home. A casting for potential donors begins. As weeks pass by, Katja starts doubting and discovers that Isa is willing to betray their relationship in order to fulfill her wish of becoming pregnant.
