I read a short review for this documentary, and it sounded quite interesting, because I have seen comedy use of sperm donation, such as Jackass and Road Trip, but never seen anything about the real nature of it. Basically this true, but stranger than fiction, story sees Pennsylvanian born twenty year old JoEllen Marsh searching for her biological father, she found out when she was younger that she was born from an anonymous donation of sperm put in her mother's system. At the same time we see the man who donated this sperm at California Cryobank, lonely hippie like animal lover Jeffrey Harrison, aka Donor 150, living in an RV on Venice Beach, who confesses to donating hundreds of times, mostly for the money, but also to help those who cannot bare children properly. JoEllen joined a website specialising in helping people find their anonymous donor number connection in order to find and meet their half brothers and sisters. Eventually a number of these half relatives have met and found connection with each other, and towards the end we do see see JoEllen and biological father Jeffrey, and one or two of the half siblings, all meet up and find resolution. I can agree the breaks in the story to see what goes on in the donation rooms and how sperm is used and whatever can be a little annoying, but you have to know that kind of stuff at the same time, and the story to be honest I found a little weird and lame, but overall it's not a bad documentary at all. Okay!
