Sofia (Angie Cepeda), who hails from Columbia, came to the States, to study law, and get a green card through an illegal marriage as her cousin Monica (Martita Roca) did. But unfortunately she picked a jerk, as Sofia comes home one night to find that her ‘husband’ has stolen all of her possessions, including her school books, closed their accounts and everything else possible. Yet, she still can’t report him to the police out of fear of being deported.  Then unexpectedly, a weird and wealthy couple Frank and Helen Bauman (Jim Piddock and Nora Dunn), ask Sofia to rent out her body to be a surrogate mother for $50,000.

Broke, and out of options, and constantly living in fear that her ‘husband’ may bring the hammer down on her at any second, Sofia agrees to the Bauman’s proposition, which leads to her meeting Dr. Neil (Ken Marino). She falls for him and feels that her feelings may be reciprocated. But she hasn’t told him anything of her predicament with her ‘husband’, or her surrogate ‘arrangement’…
