Summary

When Aaron meets Jayson Brunsdon, one of Australia's leading fashion figures, they both dream of becoming fathers one day ... a difficult and risky prospect few same-sex couples at the time dare. Together they build the Jayson Brunsdon brand from nothing into one of the most eponymous labels in Australia, worn by Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts and Jennifer Hawkins. Jayson quickly rises to fame, survives cancer, and the label traverses the highs and lows of the fashion industry. They lose everything, and rebuild it all again. In 2014, a story on 60 Minutes inspires them to take the plunge into parenthood via surrogacy -- a controversial act in Australia, but a possibility in Thailand.
