A New York couple, Rachel (Emilia Clarke) and Alvy (Chiwetel Ejiofor) live in a not-so-distant future where technology provides ever-more convenient living. A rising tech company executive, Rachel lands a coveted spot at the Womb Center, which offers couples a convenient (and shareable) maternity by way of detachable artificial wombs, or pods. But Alvy, a botanist with an affection for nature, prefers a natural pregnancy. And yet, as Rachel’s AI therapist puts it, why is that “natural”? So begins the tech-paved path to parenthood.

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.

“A winning Sci-Fi satire of pregnancy gone dystopian. Entertaining but darkly resonant. Clarke and Ejiofor play it with lived-in neurotic passion.”


“Brainy but not didactic, thoughtful but not dull. Full of compelling ideas.”
