SYNOPSIS

In their mid-30s, Eva and Kat’s humble, yet carefree, lifestyle in their London canal boat gets turned upside down when Eva (Oona Chaplin) presents Kat (Natalia Tena - Game of Thrones and Harry Potter) with 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, Roger, (David Verdaguer) drops in from Barcelona to party with the ladies, however, the three of them toy around with the idea of creating a baby together. 

The three soon realise, however, that they can’t survive without one another, and a new journey begins to build a family...
