Natural Selection (2011)

Linda White, a barren Christian housewife, leads a sheltered existence in suburban Texas.  Her world is turned upside-down when she learns that her dying husband, Abe, has been secretly donating to a sperm bank for over 20 years.  Determined to find meaning in the situation, Linda decides to grant Abe his dying wish, and sets off on a quixotic journey to find Raymond, the 23-year-old product of Abe's first donation, and bring him back to meet his father before he passes away.  Along the way, Linda's wonderfully bizarre relationship with Raymond teaches her more about herself than she ever thought possible, and forces her to come to terms with her troubled past.
