Once a bevy of children was reserved only for kings and chieftains. As a sign of their prestige.
Today a tourist guide from a neat suburb in Maastricht can father 100 children, thanks to emancipation and the Internet.

With Ed we encounter a world that might appear as somewhat artificial, a doable reality where is spoken in a clinical and controlled way about ‘wish parent’, ‘moments of ovulation, ‘ sperm results’, ‘insemination attempts’ and successful pregnancies. You would almost forget that meanwhile out of this abstract world 100 real children were born.
Why would a man wish to conceive 100 children? Social conventions put Ed and the wish mothers to the test every day again. The –sometimes absurd- ‘microcosm’ we call Ed’s world, eventually shows more of the ‘macrocosm’ we live in: our time, our morals, our society – that can produce a super donor like Ed.
