A candid, yet charming look at how a seemingly harmless and momentary lapse of judgment can lead to life-altering calamity. Lonnie (Joshua Leonard) and Clover (Jess Weixler) were once young idealists – destined to change the world, until an unanticipated pregnancy derailed their plans.

Instead of making their mark, the pair find themselves trapped in a bourgeois nightmare, hosting BBQs and arguing about organic diapers. Clover is in her final year of law school, while Lonnie, stuck in a nine-to-five routine, remains in a daze about the artistic lifestyle they were forced to abandon.

Director: Joshua Leonard
