Is parenthood the only logical continuation of life? Has the traditional concept of the nuclear family become obsolete? Filmmaker Marina Belobrovaja has chosen a path that many women in a similar situation think about, but do not follow. In Our Child she explores the existing social ideas, role patterns, and conventions surrounding parenthood and family, starting with the conception of her daughter with the help of a sperm donor.
