Jules Wildgren is a 21-year-old Princeton college student with a full scholarship and a family she's ashamed to invite to Parents' Weekend. Tall, blonde, and outwardly identical to her wealthy classmates, her plan is to take the 10,000 dollars she'll receive from donating her 'pedigree' eggs and try to save her father from addiction.
Amie Barrow is a 34-year-old married mother of two who scrapes by on her family's single paycheck. After watching a TV show about surrogates, she thinks she's found a way to recover a sense of purpose and bring in some extra cash.
India Bishop, 38 years old (really 43), believes she's found her happy-ever-after when she marries a wealthy and much older man, Marcus Croft, but decides that a baby will seal the deal. When all of her attempts at pregnancy fail, she turns to technology - and Annie and Jules - to help make her dreams come true.
But each woman's plans are thrown into disarray when Marcus suddenly dies, and his 23-year-old daughter, Bettina, is named guardian of India's unborn child. As the baby's due date draws near, these four women - with nothing and everything in common - discover what makes each of them a mother in her own right.
