We meet Monica, a beautiful young executive, preparing at home for the meeting of her career.
The following morning, impossibly, she wakes up nine months pregnant. How can she explain it to her colleagues? How can she even fit into her clothes? She struggles desperately to find a way to make it to the meeting and save her career.
