A successful, single businesswoman who dreams of having a baby discovers she is infertile and hires a working class woman to be her unlikely surrogate.

Thirty-seven year old Kate Holbrook, a Vice-President for Philadelphia based health food retailer Round Earth, has placed career over a personal life. She has suddenly realized however that she wants to have a baby. This decision coincides with working on what is arguably the biggest assignment of her career, to oversee the development of the company's flagship store in West Philadelphia, which will be no easy task. With no man in her life and no current prospects, becoming pregnant by natural means does not seem in the cards. She learns that adoption for a single woman takes years, and that her chances of conceiving by any means are one in a million due to her T-shaped uterus, which rules out IVF. As such, she turns to surrogacy. The woman her surrogacy agent matches her up with is Angie Ostrowiski. The implantation does result in Angie becoming pregnant. As much as controlling Kate wants to oversee every aspect of Angie's pregnancy, she and Angie become unexpectedly closer geographically after Angie dumps her no good husband, Carl, and lands on Kate's doorstep. From Kate's perspective, they are a clash of personalities, as Kate views Angie as uncouth, immature South Philly trailer trash. Angie, however sees Kate as her new BFF, that status which is complicated by a secret she is keeping about the pregnancy. One other issue for Kate of having Angie in her life is her burgeoning romantic relationship with a juice bar owner and former corporate lawyer named Rob Ackerman, only the second romantic relationship in her life. She believes Rob may not only see a baby but surrogacy by trailer trash as a deal breaker in their relationship.
