1972. Four teenage girls. All they have in common is that they're dealing with unplanned pregnancies. In rural Georgia, Ola has found out she's pregnant. Her younger sister, Izella is looking for a way that Ola's baby-in-a-belly can turn into no-baby-in-a-belly. Their young neighbor, Missippi, is also pregnant, but doesn't fully understand the extent of her predicament. When her father sends her to Chicago to give birth, she meets Susan, who is white and the daughter of an anti-choice senator.
