The Nest is a Glasgow-set surrogacy thriller which explores the life-changing consequences of a wealthy couple asking a teenage girl to carry their baby.
Dan and Emily are madly in love and have been trying for a baby for years – with an enormous house in the poshest area of Glasgow, the only thing missing from their perfect lives is a child.
By chance, the couple meet 18-year-old Kaya who lives at the other end of town and whose life is a lot more precarious than theirs. Kaya agrees to carry their baby, but there’s a mystery around who Kaya really is and what has brought her into the couples lives.
“Can the dreams of Kaya, Emily and Dan be fulfilled or have all three embarked on a relationship of mutually assured destruction?” asks the synopsis.
“The Nest forces an emotionally combustible confrontation between two Glasgows,” says writer Nicole Taylor, “and it’s the story I’ve wanted to tell all my life.”
Who wrote The Nest?
The Nest is written by Nicole Taylor, who penned the five-time Bafta-winning BBC drama Three Girls about the Rochdale grooming scandal.
Taylor’s previous credits also include The C Word starring Sheridan Smith and the film Wild Rose starring Julie Walters.
