An executive for a hedge fund is asked to vet a surrogate for his powerful employer’s barren wife, just as his own wife struggles to hold on to her high-risk pregnancy. Angela, a precocious, low-income young woman, is selected to carry the child, and turns the tables of power as her body swells with the would-be heir of billions. ANGEL FAT asks the question of just how much money can buy when money is illimitable – and at what human cost.
