What compels a Newton woman, in her 40s, who has three teenage children, to become a surrogate? And not just once, but twice, within two years?
That question drives the new documentary, "The Guys Next Door." The film follows what the directors called "a real Modern Family." The bunch includes Rachel, a surrogate, her family, and the gay married couple she helps conceive — one of whom has been a friend since college.
The filmmakers followed the family for three years and the final product offers an intimate reflection on parenthood and nature vs. nurture.
Rachel Segall, 2-time surrogate and subject of "The Guys Next Door."
