"Two 4 One"
Adam gets a frantic call from his psycho ex. She wants moral support while she inseminates with donor sperm—but she gets a lot more. We discover Adam is transgendered while at a consultation for phalloplasty where he discovers he’s accidently pregnant. But Adam is becoming a man and men don’t get pregnant. So obviously he’ll get rid of it. But just as he’s about to, Miriam miscarries. She can’t have a baby. Adam is holding her only hope at family. So, Adam reconsiders and realizes that to become the man he’d always dreamed of being, he’ll first give birth.

About the Production:
"While my wife was trying to get pregnant 5
years ago, I read an anecdote about a transgender guy getting accidently
pregnant in a queer pregnancy book. I dropped the book saying “Now,
that’s a movie!” By February 2014, it will be. Two 4 One, my first
feature, is a Woody-Allenesque romantic comedy about the most modern
family. I’ve been making queer media for 23 years and have never had the
attention span to make a feature—until now. This is a story yet to be
told that audiences are ripe to receive. It’s half funded through
Telefilm Canada’s Micro-budget program." -- Maureen Bradley
