Overview

This 60-minute documentary is a candid and emotional look at 11 single women who have decided to actively pursue motherhood without the assistance of a spouse or boyfriend. The women are in a support group in New York City and are intelligent, articulate, and financially independent. But they also feel that since they are nearing the end of their fertile years they must stop waiting and "go it alone." The documentary was filmed over two years and focuses particularly on two group members -- Debbie and Jan -- who are both 43. Debbie becomes pregnant by an unknown donor and viewers follow her throughout her pregnancy. Jan, despite dozens of attempts and thousands of dollars, fails to become pregnant. Viewers follow her through a journey of initial optimism, disappointment, and finally a transition to adoption.
