Filmmaker Shalom Almond and her husband Osker want a baby, but because Shalom has inherited an eye disease from her mother that leads to blindness, they don't want to enter a random genetic lottery. Now modern science has thrown them a bone. It's a controversial process called Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis and it might just make them a baby with perfect eyes. So Shalom and Osker embark on the painful, expensive and morally fraught course that is embryo screening. It's a harrowing ride for them and their extended family, and the destination seems forever distant – until they take one last, risky turn that ultimately changes their lives.

Love-Heart Baby (Shalom Almond, 2012) is a documentary film that explores up-to-date information on an important personal and ethical issue of our day: genetic screening. It can be used within the curriculum areas of Science, English and Visual Arts (Media).
