Lucie (Natalia Dontcheva) and Marion (Vanessa Larre) have been together for five years, now Lucie wants to take their relationship to another level by including a child in their life. Marion however, is not sure that is what she wants. Set in Paris, the couple is limited in their options for even getting pregnant; artificial insemination is not available to lesbian couples nor is adoption.
The couple faces a relationship crisis as they work through the details of the roles that each woman will play, which the sperm donor to use and if the father should even be involved. As the women take this important next step in their journey together, they forge a `new world' for themselves.
Director Etienne Dhaene has created a delightful film, full of poignant moments in the couple's quest to have the children they desire.
Natalia Dontcheva and Vanessa Larre are comical and believable as lesbian couple Lucie and Maya, facing change and the unknown in their relationship. Gregory Fitoussi also stands out as Hugo, the baby's sperm donor who wants more involvement in the child's life than the women would like.
