30 year old Freddy has long wanted to start his own family, but for him this ordinary desire comes with unique challenges. He is a gay transgender man.

In this moving and insightful documentary we follow Freddy for three years as he ceases hormone treatment so he can fall pregnant. At first he views pregnancy as a practical option, but it soon prompts an unexpected reckoning with his relationship to masculinity and gender presentation.

Against a backdrop of increasing hostility towards trans people the world over, Freddy is forced to confront his own naivety and mine unknown depths of courage as he embarks on the journey to birth his own child.

Seahorses are almost alone in the animal kingdom for giving the male of the species sole responsibility for carrying and birthing their offspring. This is the story of the dad who gave birth.
