Danny, a Taiwanese-American man, longs to have a baby with his American partner Tate, but their attempts at surrogacy, while successful, are complicated by Danny’s meddling mom who wants to control every aspect of the process — all the way from Taipei. Danny and Ma’s relationship is torn apart, as she still has unresolved issues about Danny being gay and the non-traditional family that they are starting. Baby Steps is a multicultural comedy-drama, which takes an honest and realistic look at gay family issues in a cross-generational Taiwanese and American family.
