This film has a pre-recorded Q&A with the filmmakers following the program.

Synopsis: When carefree and directionless young Milo meets Roger, an older gay man, at a bar, she makes the impulsive decision to become a surrogate for him. Though she initially views this as a selfless act to help a new friend and find meaning for her own life, her decision quickly becomes messy and complicated. Milo uses her pregnancy as leverage to grow closer to Roger, while he simultaneously decides to set firm boundaries. Lead Molly Bernard gives a multilayered performance filled with honesty, charm and grace as her character discovers what it means to find purpose and belonging. A laugh-out-loud comedy filled with heart and nuance, beneath the surface MILKWATER is about understanding parenthood and sexuality while navigating difficult relationships with those you love.
