With adoption and surrogacy illegal for gay couples in Israel, Motty and Alon have been forced to look further afield in their quest to have a child. Double Income, Kids chronicles a year in their lives, from the relationship they form - through Skype - with their surrogate in the United States, to the challenges they face – not always spoken, but deeply felt - from their families, to the reality of being sleep-deprived, overwhelmed parents. A story that is both personal and universal, the film deals with discrimination and acceptance, and is, ultimately, a joyful celebration of love and family.
