So what’s the story about?
Dan and Emily are happily married and live in Glasgow. They are a wealthy couple and have everything that one can dream of. The couple is trying to have children for years now, but they did not succeed.
Dan and Emily stumble upon a teenager, Kaya, who is willing to lend them her womb for their child. In other words, surrogacy. Kaya lives at the end of the town and has a precarious life. It is unclear how she met the couple — not much information is available about the 18-year-old.
The Nest will be thrilling to watch as the couple brings in a strange girl into their happy lives. The production of The Nest began in September. Trailer is not out yet, and the release dates are still uncertain.
