Veronica is a young woman who works as a surrogate mother and carries a child for another woman. During a routine ultrasound, doctors discover that the baby is at risk for a genetic disease, and the baby's biological mother does not want to keep it. Veronica faces a harrowing dilemma: should she honor the surrogacy contract or should she follow her newly discovered maternal instinct?
