Amy is in her early 20s and living in Darwin with her partner Dylan, who is serving in the army. She has started coming to terms with the lifestyle there and has plans for her own career, when life as she knows it suddenly changes. A positive pregnancy test suddenly throws a big spanner in the works and despite Dylan's support, Amy struggles to come to terms with this life changing event. Her apprehension is not helped by a brusque obstetrician and her early experiences in the pregnancy and birth "industry". It is only when she meets a woman who has experienced a home birth that Amy starts to see a different way in how she can experience pregnancy and birthing.
