When families are unable to have children, some parents turn to surrogacy. Boise has become a hub for this option, which is growing in popularity. That's why filmmaker Beth Aala decided to make a documentary about the subject. She joins Idaho Matters to talk about “Made In Boise," which is now going to be distributed on PBS October 28. In Idaho, you can watch it at 10:00 p.m. on Idaho Public Television.
