Hello

Synopsis

Made in India is a feature-length documentary film about the human experiences behind the phenomena of ‘outsourcing’ surrogate mothers to India. The film shows the journey of an infertile American couple, an Indian surrogate, and the reproductive outsourcing business that brings them together. Weaving together these personal stories within the context of a growing international industry, Made in India explores a complicated clash of families in crisis, reproductive technology, and choice from a global perspective.
