A fertility specialist is hailed a miracle worker until the advent of commercial DNA testing reveals his unexpected secret.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
For decades, Las Vegas fertility specialist Dr Quincy Fortier was celebrated for helping thousands of couples have babies. His secret? Impregnating women with his own sperm, unbeknownst to them. Using a consumer DNA test, a woman discovers that Dr Fortier is her biological father, setting in motion a quest to find her many half-siblings. Filmmaker Hannah Olson chronicles their struggle to understand the truth about themselves and the unusual man who fathered them all.
