Eva (Amy Werba) is a young student in New York who has traveled a little and is more worldly-wise as a consequence. One day her boyfriend mentions having children and when she flatly refuses to become a mother -- with his participation, at least -- he leaves her. Eva, in the meantime, befriends a young, pregnant woman who has been dumped by her boyfriend and is on the verge of getting an abortion. The two new friends talk together, go out, and generally bond as companions -- and Eva, determined that her friend should have the baby, works hard to talk her out of an abortion. Amy Werba's mother, Nadia Werba, directed this movie which was filmed in eight days. An earlier film, My Mother, My Daughter, starred the director's younger daughter, Alicia Werba and was a prize-winner in Italy.
