Resolved Question: What is this movie That I
I watched a movie along time ago about a time when some women can have babies and others cant. The rich wealthy women seem to be the ones who cant have babies so they are married and they own the other women who can have babies. They make them sleep with their husbands and when they get pregnat they take their babies and raise them as their own. If a woman get pregnant by someone else her babies are taken and she is killed because she is a whore or something like that. I really want to know what movie this is BTW Its NOT children of men.
