Expecting

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.

Deborah Day
Director

Deborah Day was born in Toronto and grew up in Montréal. While studying theatre and creative arts in college, a flash flood changed her life. While working on a student play, she was forced to move off the stage and behind the scene to get the production mounted. She's never looked back. Following college she studied Communication Arts at Concordia University. From there she began her career in film and television. She has received critical acclaim and awards for her work and has directed the short films The Orange Seed Myth and Other Lies Mothers Tell (1997), Altarpiece (1998) and Blind (1999).
