Stephanie, played by Valerie Buhagiar, is a single, and very pregnant performance artist living in a trendy downtown loft. Following a rather torrid night of passion, she goes into premature labour and starts calling her closest friends and family to come help. One by one they arrive to support her in their own individual ways. They are: Anita, Steph’s domineering older sister, who worries about Steph’s freewheeling lifestyle and wants a hospital birth. Gary, a food photographer, Steph’s friend and occasional lover, who desperately plans his marriage proposal to her. Dani, an entertainment reporter and Steph’s best friend, who has agreed to act as Steph’s labour coach but would rather focus on her next romantic conquest. Julia, Steph’s midwife and Anita`s estranged childhood friend, tries to maintain calm in the midst of chaos. Ian, Steph’s current “New Age” lover, deeply wants to become a dad, and Jack, Anita`s perfect husband, wants to rekindle the spark in his failing marriage. Finally there`s Azaan, Steph`s creative collaborator and neighbour, who brings some spiritual harmony to the occasion.
