The(ir) Blurb...

David and Andrew decide to both give sperm samples for an equal chance at being the biological father to their future child. While sexed-up David seems to be a bottomless well of supply, uptight Andrew runs dry. Escaping the sterile fertility clinic to a nearby motel, Andrew vows to try again, but as the pressure mounts, Andrew starts to unravel at the thought of being a dad. It takes his partner's patience and love to get him back to the deed at hand, reassuring him that they are both ready for this.
