Young, professional and successful, John and Laura (Regina Hall) Taylor desperately want to have a baby, but are unable to conceive.

After exhausting all other options, the couple hire Anna, a beautiful young woman who agrees to become a surrogate mother for the Taylors.

Everything seems fine until Anna starts to develop a dangerous fixation with John as the pregnancy moves further along. The Taylors now find themselves playing a deadly game with a psychopath who holds the key to their future.

I advise you to ignore the low rates and watch this excellent movie.

I guarantee you are gonna enjoy watching this interesting movie from the beginning till the end.
