The story follows New Yorkers RJ and Rosemary, who have been trying to have a baby for the past eight years. Surrogacy is their last chance to have the family they want. But once they arrive in Mumbai and begin the embryo transplant, things go awry. The pressure in the last 24 hours leading up to the transplant brings up surprising revelations about each other.
