Mary, aged 24 was in a car accident and was forced to have a hysterectomy, yet she now wishes to have a child. Her body therefore cannot produce eggs and no way she can fall pregnant. Her best friend and boyfriend died in a car accident and Mary becomes the legal guardian of their child.

Mary is driving with a friend back from the movies when a drunk driver goes through a red robot and crashes into them. The ambulance arrives and using the Jaws of Life, breaks them out of the car. She is rushed to hospital where the doctors immediately start operating on her. She wakes up with her face and body bruised and cut and is suffering a bit of amnesia. She falls back asleep and is awoken by a friendly doctor explaining the operation they performed and that they had to remove her ovaries.

She is in distress but starts coming to terms with it.

Mary is fetched, taken home by her mom and dad and is carried to bed. She starts having nightmares about her life without a child to love and hold. The next morning her boyfriend Ben comes over and tries to be optimistic and cheer her up. But to no avail Mary is still distraught and begins to cry.

Mary reminds Ben of a life with a child and how happy Tristan and Frank (their best friends) are with their baby girl who is now 3 months. Mary calls Tristan and Frank and asks them out to a movie. Tristan phones a babysitter and organises her baby girl to be looked after. The babysitter arrives and the group depart for the movies. They watch a movie and decide to stop off and stay for a meal as well.
