Maggie, a mother of a toddler, decides to become a surrogate for Donovan and Chip, a loving gay couple living in New York City. The money Maggie would get paid would get her back on track to finish her education and start a career. She also wants to help this young couple achieve their dream of starting a family.

Ten years later, an issue arises which shakes up the lives of all concerned.
