STREAMING December 3rd - 6th

Milo (played brilliantly by Molly Bernard - Younger, Transparent) feels abandoned when her best friend Noor becomes pregnant and devotes all of her time to her wife. In a quick-thinking act of humility, and after a few drinks, Milo offers to become the surrogate and egg donor for a gay bar owner (Patrick Breen, After Louie) who is struggling to have a child of his own. From there, Milo endures all the trials of pregnancy while trying to juggle friendships and a relationship and, at the same time, attempting to define what exactly her relationship is to Roger, the near-stranger whose child she will give birth to. Milkwater feels like a fresh take on the complexities of parenthood, blending the comedic antics of parental responsibility and the struggles facing members of the LGBTQ+ communities.
