Vic and Ami are living the quintessential perfect married life. Living in the city, working high powered jobs, but their world turns upside down when they attempt to start a family and can’t get pregnant and have to resort to IVF to have a baby. The journey of IVF tests their marriage and begs the question… how far will you go to have a baby?
Though CONCEPTION is a fictional story, the film is based on Director Tarun Verma’s time as a fertility pharmacist. This film is inspired by his time helping couples trying to get pregnant and go through IVF. “It was such an eye opener to see how prevalent fertility issues are nowadays AND no one talks about it. It doesn’t matter how old you are, what race you are, infertility rates are climbing every year worldwide. I hope this film pushes the discussion forward to normalize talking about fertility struggles. My heart goes out to all the couples struggling to have a baby. I hope it happens for you and it’s everything you’d dreamed it would be,” said Verma.
Written and directed by Tarun Verma (Divorce’ish), CONCEPTION stars Kareem Ghuneim (Divorce’ish) and Simren Lalani (Ghost Story Chronicles). The film was financed by 27th Entertainment & Chai Time Productions. Chai Time Production’s Tarun Verma produced, with Anil Damani executive producing.
Gravitas Ventures will release the CONCEPTION on digital platforms on October 11. The film has a running time of 1 hour 41 minutes and will not be rated by the MPAA.
