Sara's at the clinic with a weird problem: she's nine-months pregnant, and it happened overnight. Stuck with her judgmental ex-best-friend, a nurse who thinks she's cray, and a creepy feeling that she's totally effed, Sara will have to face a supernatural force... And make sure her mom doesn't find out about any of it.
