A wealthy British couple living in Bangkok are so desperate to have a child they consider buying one on the Asian black market. This British drama chronicles their attempts. They tried adopting in England, but because they frequently travel about, were denied. Unfortunately, their first attempt to buy a baby is discovered and they are nearly arrested by the Thai government. Still the wife, Kate is terribly obsessed and so goes to cagey Jack Lee, who for $20,000 promises to bring her a child. He does, but then the couple learn that they cannot take it out of Thailand and they must give it back. She and Lee then conspire to purchase a Vietnamese orphan and smuggle it to Bangkok and then to England. She decides not to tell Michael, her husband, and she sneaks off to Saigon pretending to be Lee's wife. But once they get the baby, will she be able to keep it after all?
