Michael (James Woods) and Linda (Glenn Close) Spector are a mature, successful couple who have everything it takes to be parents--except a baby. Enter Lucy (Mary Stuart Masterson) and Sam (Kevin Dillon), a teenage couple who have a baby on the way, but aren't ready to be parents. As Michael and Linda await the birth of Lucy's child so that they can adopt it, they become unexpectedly parental toward Lucy and Michael, making the experience even more enriching--and complicated--than they expected.
A wealthy couple longing for a baby contact their lawyer to help them find a child to adopt. Their dream seems on the verge of coming through when he introduces them to an unmarried, pregnant teenager. But things don't work out in quite the way any of them expected...
