What drives people to hand over their own flesh and blood? The British filmmaker spends time with the birth mothers who do, uncovering stories of poverty, addiction and abuse that drive them to heartbreaking decisions. In California, adoption is a multi-million-dollar industry where agents, facilitators and lawyers can earn up to $50,000 by pairing pregnant women with couples desperate to adopt.
