This film follows couples over 18 months as they take a controversial route to find cures for their critically ill children. Their children need life-saving, bone marrow transplants. Using IVF techniques, the couples try to have a new baby who will be a perfect tissue match, and therefore a perfect donor, for their ill sibling. As practising Catholics, 'creating' a child to cure another presented Alison and Tom with a moral dilemma.
