Abby Taylor believes deep in her soul that she was meant to be a mother. Fertility treatments have left her and her husband broke and without options. Looking for a fresh start, she attends a transformational Breakthroughs and Miracles seminar. But what Abby isn't telling anyone, including her husband, is that she is really there to meet with an anonymous sperm donor that she found online. She's going to take one more chance at conceiving a child — even if it means she could lose so much more in the process.
The inspiration for the story comes from co-director/writer Rob Clyde's own experiences with his wife, Avery Clyde, who plays Abby in the film. Rob was inspired to write a script exploring the challenges they faced. "It's such a personal battle that's hard to share with others, because so many people simply don't understand. We want to convey to viewers that this is happening all around us, and most people don't even know it," said Clyde.
Backstreet Boys member Kevin Richardson, who stars as the anonymous sperm donor, also wrestled with infertility with his wife, Kristin. "I am honored to work with my friends, the Clyde Brothers, and I hope that this film will provide hope to those on this journey, while exposing the raw feelings to those who have never dealt with infertility," stated Richardson.
