In Love We Trust is sort of a variation from an earlier Film Movement selection film, The Trap. In this case, we see the effects on the relationship of two couples. In order to save a child from illness, a bone marrow transplant is needed. Since the father and mother (now divorced and remarried) are an unsuitable match for such a donation. They decide to attempt to produce another offspring to use the umbilical blood for the bone marrow transplant.
