In the movie, two teenaged children conceived by artificial insemination get the notion to seek out their birth father and introduce him into the family life that their two mothers have built for them. Once the donor is found, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, re-defined, and then re-re-defined.

2010 Guide Analysis: ""Laurel Canyon" and "High Art" writer/director Lisa Cholodenko returns to Sundance with this portrait of a modern family that seems like perfect arthouse fodder. Benning and Moore as a happy Californian lesbian couple makes for brilliant casting, but one wonders if the content will push the drama or comedy in a way that justifies a cinematic release as on the surface it resembles a made-for-TV movie more than anything else."
