A scientist, on the cusp of a new IVF discovery, is faced with difficult decisions about her own fertility. Re: Production is an intimate story exploring women’s choices in contemporary society, & the science behind those choices, when weighing up careers, parenthood, & where self-worth is found.

What does it mean to be a woman? What’s your job? Do you have children?

Have you tried for children? Do you know your options if you can’t have children naturally?

Do you want to be a mother? Why not? You can have a career & children, can’t you? Will you at least freeze your eggs?

Don’t you ever feel like something is missing?
