Synopsis

Follows a group of US women all hoping to adopt a child in Latin America, childless French couple head to south-east Asia in the mistaken belief they can adopt. But on arrival they discover there are no children available. They decide to book into a Phnom Penh hotel full of couples in the same situation.

In the evenings, by contrast, they share tips on the best deals and how to cope with the bureaucratic maze.
