Plot Synopsis

THE NEST is a five-episode thriller that centers on a wealthy Glasgow couple who cannot have a baby and they have a chance encounter with a troubled 18-year-old girl on the other side of the city who offers to be their surrogate for several reasons. Property developer Dan and music teacher wife Emily are crazy about each other. They live in a huge house in the nicest part of Glasgow and want for nothing. But they've been trying to have a baby for years with no success. When a chance encounter brings 18-year-old Kaya crashing into Emily's life, and it seems that just maybe, fate has brought them together. From the other side of town, Kaya is determined to make a life for herself. Experiencing the luxurious interior of Emily's Range Rover, she quickly starts to get a taste for how the other half live. Back in her bare local authority flat, Kaya decides to change her future. She tracks down Emily and makes her an offer: she'll be Dan and Emily's surrogate, if they help set her life on track. She can change their lives, if they can change hers. But with only one embryo left, can Dan and Emily trust a teenage girl they barely know with their last chance to have a family? THE NEST had its U.S. premiere on Monday, July 13, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Acorn TV released the first two episodes. A new episode debuts each Monday through August 3.
