With her boyfriend Wes (Brad Mills) coming home on leave from the armed forces, Emma (Carrie Anne Hunt) asks her best friend Danielle (Kristi Ray) to pretend to be the mother of the baby Emma conceived with Wes the night before he left but had kept secret. And Danielle, dogged by an infatuation for the child amid ambivalence towards her own sexual inexperience, agrees. But with the deception well in hand, Emma takes an extra, seemingly unnecessary step of telling Wes she is a born-again virgin. As Wes unravels the reasons for Emma’s sudden decision, Danielle begins to wonder about the implications this declaration has on all of them and starts to undermine Emma’s plan.
