In a not-so-distant future, AI is all the rage and nature is becoming a distant memory. Tech giant Pegasus offers couples the opportunity to share pregnancy on a more equal footing via detachable artificial wombs, or pods. But at what cost?

Rachel and Alvy, a New York couple, are ready to take their relationship to the next level and start a family. Rachel’s work gives them a chance to fast-track to the top of the Pegasus waiting list. But Alvy, a botanist and devoted purist has doubts. Nonetheless, his love for Rachel prompts him to take a leap of faith. And so begins the wild ride to parenthood in this brave new world with all its
twists, turns, and bumps along the way.

THE POD GENERATION forces us to confront our fascination with and skepticism towards progress and technology through Rachel and Alvy’s intimate, wickedly funny and haunting journey.

Emmy® nominee Emilia Clarke and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor star in a sharply comic love story about big tech becoming the route to parenthood.
