Eager-to-please Brooklynite Jess is thrilled when her best friend asks her to be a surrogate for him and his husband. After a prenatal test brings to light that the baby will be likely to have Down's Syndrome, tensions rise between Jess and the would-be fathers as they navigate the delicate situation, considering difficult options.

As electric and open as Jess herself, The Surrogate invites the audience along for every doctor’s appointment, every celebratory dinner, every journey that Jess takes in this ferociously modern and intimate dialogue-driven moral drama that tackles the issues of identity politics, eugenics, reproductive rights, and raising special needs children.

“This clear-eyed ethical drama is propelled by a performance of stunning psychological insight and raw feeling from Jasmine Batchelor.” – The Hollywood Reporter
