In this unvarnished doc, husband-and-wife team Chen Rotem and Omer Yefman, thirty-something Israeli singer Rotem, with two children of her own, selflessly decides to become a surrogate so her two friends, a married pair unable to conceive, can experience parenthood.

From that moment on, the surrogate couple aims the camera at themselves.
