Better than I thought it would be

Interesting premise for its time. The film depicts the story of a young woman who agrees to take part in a science study and be implanted with a fertilized egg from another couple. The concept was practically science fiction when the movie was made. The movie is nothing spectacular but pretty good. Well thought out plot, good dialogue, good acting.
