"Ten babies, nine mothers . . . One father . . . "
An immaculate deception set in a high-end private fertility clinic in Las Vegas where the patients who gamble in the casino of conception politics discover that the inconceivable can happen.
In a climate of rapid technological advancement, the baby business is booming. ART is the acronym for Assisted Reproductive Technology, or the science of unnatural conception. Classic cases of infertile couples, biological clock challenged career women, gay couples and even unattached singles previously denied the possibility of parenthood can now achieve the previously inconceivable if they are prepared to throw themselves at the mercy of the medical gurus and drug companies offering ART procedures and pay the price of high potential failure and other unknown risks.
"Inconceivable" explores a week in the life of a typical 'cycling' batch of women and their donors preparing to undergo any one or a combination of Assisted Reproductive Technology procedures.
Dr Jackson Charles Freeman (Colm Feore) takes ten patients per batch at his highly progressive and internationally acclaimed Las Vegas clinic. He cycles them efficiently to calendar match so they undergo more or less the same procedure at the same time. Nine months previous to the cycle under investigation at a Los Angeles Arbitration, the ART guru may wish he hadn't taken such a personal interest in one particular female patient when it emerges that the inconceivable seems to have occurred – it would appear from photographic evidence that he may have fathered every child conceived during that cycle.
