The boundless yearning for a child brings a Dutch couple and a single Norwegian woman to St. Petersburg. Here, an egg and embryo donation should fulfil their strong desire. The documentary follows them during both the physical and emotional journey to the much-coveted baby. What motivates them to travel all the way to Russia? Will their dream come true there? And what are the motivations of the Russian egg donors to help these people? What risks are they taking?
