Synopsis


A tale of Love, Grief and Turkey Basting.


"You're manipulative.


You're beautiful and manipulative but it won't last."


Madeline wants a baby, so a baby she will have.


It doesn't matter that she is in a relationship with a woman, or that they can't afford the high private clinic fees, she'll go about getting this child whichever way she can.


Together with her partner, the selfless, kind, stable Toni the two women explore all the options available to them but when Madeline gets excited about one possibility in particular alarm bells are raised for Toni.


Across London a lonely, not quite yet 'old' older man is attempting to finish his novel (who is he kidding, start his novel) that he's been working on for fifteen years.


Michael has had children, three of them.


His girls grew up and had children of their own, his son Ben never did, Ben's death causing a pain in Michael that would dull but never subside.


When Madeline, like a whirlwind, arrives back in Michael's life after twelve years she comes with her own solution to the grief they both feel, not that she will let him know.


Now the Nuclear Family is no longer considered the norm, how far can Madeline go to get the baby she so desires?


And does it really matter who she has this baby with?


People are manipulated, games are played and hearts ultimately shattered in this tale of one woman's longing for a child.
