The Perfect Donor
The Perfect Donor is an exploration into the world of commercial egg donation. The emotional stories of young women who provide eggs, so that others can create the families of their dreams, reveal why women become egg donors, how they feel about the process, and how they think about the children born from their eggs. Interviews with medical doctors, egg donor agency founders and recruiters, psychologists, and geneticists take a look inside the egg donation industry, and shed light on a controversial and timely subject.
While some women are overjoyed at their role in helping others bring children into their lives, others discover that the thousands of dollars they receive for their eggs comes at a greater cost. For more information about the film and when it will be released, see: The Perfect Donor.
