"We were completely ignorant of this subject until we tried to begin our family four years ago, and found we were unable to conceive. As we sought a solution, we began documenting our journey as a way of reflecting and coping, and we were overwhelmed by the physical, emotional, and financial cost of creating a baby. We filmed all important events, decisions, and results in real time, exposing the heartbreaking, challenging, and even hilarious roller-coaster ride undertaken by a couple struggling to build a family."

--Maya and Noah

“One More Shot is that rare film that engages our heart while opening our minds. It’s a personal exploration of a world of medical technology that’s changing the way we think about and create our families. For extended family and professionals, it’s a way into the emotional journey of assisted reproduction; for those who’ve been there, it’s a welcome message of understanding that normalizes what can feel like a stigmatized experience.”

--KJ Dell'Antonia, columnist and contributing editor for The New York Times
