Tweetable Logline: Emotional, raw doc about ordinary couple struggling to create a family when the old fashioned way doesn’t work & how we make modern families
Elevator Pitch: “One More Shot” is a raw, personal look at the struggles of infertility and the complex issues that accompany one couple’s harrowing quest for a baby. Approximately 7.3 million Americans suffer with infertility. The filmmakers, Maya Grobel Moskin and Noah Moskin, are also the subjects of the story. This gives the film a first-person account that is much more personal, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting than a more traditional health-related doc. This documentary is really a story about how babies are made, when the old fashioned way just doesn’t work.

About the Film: We made this film because nothing like it existed during our struggle with infertility. We spent five years trying to create our family and, in the process, learned all about the hardships, frustrations, and heartbreak associated with infertility. We also learned that there is a lot of shame around the topic. This film aims to break the silence around infertility and normalize the conversation for the more than 7.2 million Americans (and countless more worldwide) who can’t have a baby the old fashioned way. It’s our story. It’s also the story of a lot of brave, courageous people.
