About

From Australia, an irreverent comedy of errors and expectations in which Clare, artist and mother-to-be, becomes the subject of a grand plan. In her isolated farmhouse in an idyllic bush setting, she awaits what she hopes will be the perfect home birth, while her three girlfriends with their various men, children and animals, converge from all directions to assist. In fact, nothing goes according to plan
