Making room for a new family
Sisters, Ten, Wednesday at 8.30pm
WHAT if you spent your whole life thinking you were an only child, only to find out you had more than 100 adult siblings who now wanted to meet you?
Julia Bechly’s (Maria Angelico) life is turned upside down when her father, IVF pioneer Julius Bechly (Barry Otto), makes a death-bed confession that his award-winning career as a fertility specialist was propped up by the use of his own sperm. As a secret donor, Julius admits that he could potentially be the father of hundreds of children.
As the media latch on to the IVF scandal, Julia’s overdeveloped sense of responsibility leads her to a fateful decision: she welcomes the wave of strangers with open arms. But has she bitten off more than she can chew?
