In a downtown Toronto loft, Stephanie, a single, pregnant performance artist, invites family, friends, lovers, ex-lovers and neighbours to witness and participate in the home birth of her first child. Despite their complex and diverse relationships, this group of people laughs, hopes, cries and confides in each other as they support Stephanie during the birthing process. Throughout the next 24 hours, dramatic events surrounding the birth unfold. Tension, humour, egos, and relationship challenges abound. Through it all, everyone is forced to come to terms with the past, the pregnancy, each other and the fact that their lives will never be quite the same again.
