We Are Family, the quintessential gay anthem, has taken on new meaning in gay districts and liberal suburbs across North America as more and more gay and lesbian couples choose prams over parties. Yes, the most liberated homosexuals in history are becoming parents! But even in places like Quebec, one of the few places in the world to have legalized both gay marriage and adoptions, things aren't as easy as they may seem.
Produced by Rezolution Pictures in association with CBC Newsworld, the documentary MOMMY, MOMMY follows Linda and Mona, a lesbian couple from Quebec, on their quest to create the family they've always dreamed about. Linda and Mona embark upon a five year long emotional rollercoaster ride where they're confronted by the complications of access to IVF, and bans against same-sex couples adopting from overseas. After finding a birth mother in the US who welcomes lesbian parents, Linda and Mona find a final, devastating roadblock thrown up by the Christian-based adoption agency and their own government. The same one that legalized same-sex adoptions! The couple refuse to give up, and Linda and Mona's dream finally comes true in the most unexpected way…
MOMMY, MOMMY was directed by Sylvie Rosenthal and produced by Ernest Webb, Catherine Bainbridge and Christina Fon for Rezolution Pictures.
