Shot entirely on location in the Bay Area incorporating many SJSU students and alumni in front of and behind the camera, The Surrogate was written, directed, and produced by women. It is a contemporary look at a Bay Area group of diverse 40-something friends as they grapple with life’s next chapter, surrogacy, parenthood, and the ramifications of hiring a surrogate to have their next child. The Surrogate explores the messy secrets and complicated nature of parenthood and the modern family, all the while testing the boundaries of love and friendship and the bioethics of surrogacy.
