Which are more important, the rights of a mother to keep the child she loves or the rights of a childless couple who have asked that mother to bear a child for them?
This is just one of the many emotional issues raised in this compelling three-hour drama telling the true story of a child custody battle which became one of the most controversial US court cases of the 1980s.
When Bill and Betsy Stern ask MaryBeth Whitehead to bear a surrogate child for them, it seems a perfect arrangement. But little do they realise that MaryBeth will refuse to surrender her new born daughter. There are no laws governing surrogacy and when MaryBeth goes on the run with the baby, the Stems are forced into a traumatic court case to fight for custody of the daughter they have grown to love so dearly. But even more crucial are the rights of Baby M herself, a child growing up with two names, two homes, a child torn between two loving families.
