The enchanting Heather Graham stars as Georgina Salt, an energetic and spunky Londonite and owner of Salt Construction in this uplifting and funny story about a young woman’s desire to become a mother against all odds. Graham is paired with Tom Ellis as her unlikely mate, Zak, whose views on parenting are quite contrary to baby shower result in his untimely entry into the bachelor market.
Shortly after determining that single life seems to suit her for the time being, Georgina is doused with cold water after learning that a genetic irregularity will soon render her completely unable to bear children, dashing to pieces her hopes and dreams of matriarchal bliss. That is, unless she can become pregnant in the timeframe allotted by her doctor before her body permanently loses the ability to fertilize an embryo – one week. Casting any remaining sense of reason to the wind, Georgina and her best friend Clem (played by Mia Kirshner) come up with a plan to expedite the process of finding a suitable mate to replace Zak and fulfill Georgina’s ambition of becoming pregnant… a task ill-suited for the illogical and desperate minds at work.
