He wants to forget it ever happened, but she’s got a ticking biological clock and plans of her own. When he learns his wife is pregnant, he goes to great lengths to hide his betrayal. Meanwhile, the woman taunts him with his guilt. She discovers his wife’s pregnancy and uses this against him. He must become her sperm donor or she will reveal his deception. But when the truth is uncovered, it's what he least expects.
