Mak­ing room for a new fam­ily

Sis­ters, Ten, Wed­nes­day at 8.30pm

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE/TV GUIDE -

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?
