In May of 1981, Jenna Ellis is a bright, hopeful new graduate of Princeton University, headed to NYU Law School in the fall, and destined for a high-powered legal career in New York City. When she meets the charming heir to a multibillion-dollar family-owned business, Jenna's perfect life seemingly begins to coalesce.

Their destination is Melbourne, Australia, to meet with the most elite fertility doctors in the world. The Rioses would not know it, but they would ultimately be the last non-Aussie patients accepted by the cutting-edge Test Tube Baby Team led by Doctors Carl Wood and Alan Trounson.
