Finn's family is pure 21st century: two mothers, two careers and a kid. After the untimely death of her beloved long-term partner Nancy, Finn's grief begins to encroach on her already stressful daily routine as a doctor at a controversial clinic. As she flounders in her grief, she takes risks that jeopardize her relationship with the only person she really loves -her daughter, sassy troublemaker Zelly, eleven years old but with an attitude beyond her years. Meanwhile, pro-life protesters make attempts on Finn's life at the clinic, and before long police are forced to intervene. An unlikely romance develops shortly afterwards with Diana, the cop who has been assigned as her bodyguard. As tensions begin to escalate between the clinic and the protesters, Zelly becomes increasingly reckless, before finally discovering the astonishing identity of her true biological parents.
