A newly wedded couple is full of life, love, and inspiration. They have everything they've always wanted except a child. From unsuccessful attempts to repeated failures, the two newlyweds face a menacing foe: sterility. Together, they embark on the confusing journey that is in vitro fertilization. Guillaume experiences the daily embarrassment of sperm donations, tests with dreaded results and endless consultations, not to mention the specter of his own estranged father who reappears suddenly in his life. William Roy humbly and accurately shares a deeply human experience that is propelled by unshakable hope.

    William Roy is vulnerable, funny, and turns in some great sequential storytelling In Vitro showing a real mastery of layout, color palette, and having symbolism tie into the story instead of just having it to make him look clever. He can do both sad (Guillaume looking at the kids with their parents on the playground.) and wacky (Guillaume as a sperm) and is a cartoonist who I would definitely want to see more of.
