Made In Boise is a story about social acceptance in one of the most unexpected places in the country – the conservative heartland of Boise, Idaho. This character driven film will explore how and why this city has become the unofficial surrogacy capital of the United States, and why these women are putting their health and lives at risk by carrying a baby for a complete stranger.
