Jessica is a lot of things – a New York City high school drama teacher, a loving wife to her nerdy husband Gordon, and two weeks shy of turning forty. She’s also broke, tired, and hormonal as hell. Why? Because the one thing Jessica isn’t yet, is a mother.


After multiple failed attempts at in-vitro fertilization, Jessica and Gordon must face the facts. If they want to be parents anytime soon, they may need to explore alternative options such as using a complete stranger’s eggs to conceive. Fate, however, has a funny way of intervening, and after stepping in to defend a stranger from a group of thugs on the street, Jessica meets Bridget, a young savvy con artist with a long list of unpaid debts and on a mission to find a new pawn.


The scuffle sends both women to the hospital where Bridget cunningly hones-in on Jessica’s desperation to be a mother. To repay Jessica for her kindness, Bridget offers a “life-for-a-life” exchange to donate her fertile eggs for a steeply discounted price of five thousand dollars.
