What happens when a conservative Christian woman from the South answers a call from God to be a surrogate mother for two gay married men living in Massachusetts? This poignant yet lighthearted comedy delves into this quirky scenario, while illuminating the clash between same-sex couples and evangelical Christians along the way.

Miranda (A.J. Cook, CBS’s Criminal Minds) is living a quiet existence with her husband Parker in a small Georgia town, running her Christian catering service Fishes and Loaves while husband Parker (David Sutcliffe, Gilmore Girls) protests gay marriage in his free time. A moving late night TV program (combined with God’s blessing) motivates Miranda to becoming a surrogate mother for a married Massachusetts couple, Terry and Sandy. But will the other people in Miranda’s conservative Christian community understand that the fine Jewish doctor and the African American dance choreographer she’s carrying the child for are, uh oh, men? With her belly expanding, she can’t hide her little secret forever, especially when Terry unexpectedly comes to town to keep an eye on her.

With a cast full of familiar faces and an array of surprising twists and turns, Misconceptions is a timely film deftly exploring what happens when belief systems collide — and how people can ultimately come together when they least expect it and need it most. — NORA ISAACS
