The Dream Children (Feature Film)

Alex is wanting to become a father. Steven, his longtime partner, is forced to confront his fears and insecurities after a career smothered by superficiality. However, what turns out to be a simple crisis becomes problematic when they are unable to adopt. Desperate to become parents Alex turns to the internet, buying a baby from a desperate young woman who later returns with a surprise that threatens to destroy both their happiness, their careers and everything they love.
