The strive for the first child is often the hardest.

In 1st Born, the comedy follows a mixed-race couple striving to conceive their first child with unsupportive fathers.

The film stars Taylor Cole, Reza Sixo Safai, Tom Berenger, Val Kilmer, and Denise Richards.

Here’s the synopsis:

Ben and Kate are living the American dream. Kate, American, and Ben, an Iranian immigrant, are a quintessential story of true love. Though they are from disparate backgrounds, they discovered that love has no nationality. Their marriage is as perfect as can be, except for one problem, they have been unable to have a child of their own.

They tried and failed until finally, a miracle happens and Kate is pregnant. However, like all miracles, it comes with a cost. The baby is sick, and the key to saving it is in Ben and Kate’s fathers’ bone marrow. However, thrown into a grown man-baby conflict that everyone expects, but no one wants to deal with.

Ultimately, a family is a sloppy endeavor. And sometimes your enemy turns out to be your only hope. The family ultimately has to come first in this hilarious and heartwarming film feature an all-star ensemble cast.
