[Credits] [Termine] [Trailer]

Eva and Kat’s hum­ble, yet care­free, life in their London canal boat is tur­ned upsi­de down when Eva gives Kat an ulti­ma­tum: she wants a child. Kat resists, knowing that it will end the bohemi­an life­style she’s always envi­sa­ged with Eva. When Kat’s best friend from Barcelona, Roger, stops by to par­ty with them, the three toy around with the idea of crea­ting a baby tog­e­ther. Feeling backed into a cor­ner, Kat cons­ents. Surprisingly, the unusu­al do-it-yourself donor inse­mi­na­ti­on is suc­cess­ful. As Eva enjoys her pregnan­cy and Roger fan­ta­si­zes about his role in the new fami­ly, Kat begins to feel like a third wheel and starts to distance herself. When Eva has an unex­pec­ted mis­car­ria­ge, ever­yo­ne’s true fee­lings are laid bare, lea­ding Eva and Kat to break up while Roger pre­pa­res to go back to Barcelona. The three soon rea­li­ze, howe­ver, that they can’t sur­vi­ve without each other, and a new jour­ney begins to build a family.
