The Surrogate Mother

1h 30m 2015


Florence Varthy is found dead in her garage. Witnesses to her last few days are questioned to discover who wanted her dead. How did this woman, only daughter of well-known, brash businessman Jacques Varthy, end up like this? Florence and Eric wanted a baby, for themselves but also to satisfy Florence's father, who wanted a "Varthy and Sons" sign on his factory. But they couldn't have children, so resorted to another solution: finding a surrogate mother and pretending that Florence was pregnant. With the help of a gynecologist friend they hatched this plan, which was not only crazy but also illegal in France. All seemed to be going well until the baby was born.
