A thin tale of romance, pregnancy, and single motherhood (the numbers in the title add up only after the baby is born), this drama by Heidi Genee is well-acted and directed but has little to go on. Katerina (Adelheid Arndt) is an attractive, strong-minded, reasonable woman who has two different men in her life. One man is the father of the child she is carrying, someone who had been married and then blew it and has now moved in with his less-than-appealing son. Her other love interest is a divorced botanist who does not always think clearly, to say the least. For Katerina, both these prospective husbands are far from ideal. She has seen her own sister's marriage hit the skids and wonders if life alone with the baby would not be preferable to a shaky marriage.
