A single lawyer whose friends have all settled down with life partners, bisexual Macy (Sandra Ng) finds lesbians too judgmental, but entertains the prospect of entering into a serious relationship with another woman after a chance run in with her ex-girlfriend Anita (Vivian Chow), who has recently learned she is pregnant following a one night stand. When Macy, too, becomes pregnant following a fling with her neighbor, the two women flirt with the possibility of starting a family together. Their plan hits an unexpected hitch, however, when Macy is shunned by her co-workers after word gets out that she is having a baby out of wedlock.
