NO LONGER PLAYING
After years of struggling to conceive with her husband, Lizzie (Radha Mitchell, “Red Widow”) has given up hope of having a baby on her own. But when her best friend Andie (Michelle Monaghan, SOURCE CODE) finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand, an unexpected solution arises: Andie offers to have the baby and give it to Lizzie.

Jessie McCormack's debut is a refreshingly candid comedy about planning ahead for life's unexpected detours.
