Double Income, Kids
We accompany an Israeli gay couple, Motty and Alon, on their journey to have biological twins through their gestational surrogate, Krista, from Oregon/USA. For a period of one year, we look into the couple’s daily lives in Israel. We observe how they cope with the financial, medical, social and religious issues Israel’s reality poses them on their quest for fatherhood. Through their personal story, the film raises questions about parenthood, social norms and the zeitgeist of our technologically advanced world. A close look on Israel’s society and the main stream gay baby boom.
