Darlene Corey’s a young mother who has just discovered she’s pregnant again. It should be joyous news but with a rocky relationship and no close friends, she’s as anxious as she is excited. Yet when she meets Julie, another mother-to-be with nearly the same due date and her own relationship problems – Darlene thinks synchronicity has brought them together.
As the pregnancies progress, each woman faces their own challenges: Julie says her boyfriend is less than supportive and may be cheating, and Darlene is dealing with both violence on the home front, and a lodger with a drug problem. And in just a matter of months, the situation turns horrific, with one woman dead, and another life hanging in the balance.
