This is a must-see for anyone who's ever been curious about sperm banks but never had the need (or courage) to tour one. Grace Rhodes (Eichhorn) is an attractive, single 42-year-old businesswoman who desperately wants a child. Concerned about her future child's genes, Rhodes uses an exclusive Manhattan facility that allows clients to select sperm based on the donor's ethnicity and interests. Once pregnant, Rhodes becomes obsessed with finding the father. She cajoles her best friend, Elaine (Aaron), to temp at the clinic and extract the vital information from computer files. Rhodes tracks down the father, Peter Kessler (Tucci), at his photography studio and strikes up a romance with him. Her indecisiveness keeps the audience guessing whether or not she'll drop the bomb on Kessler.
