Kat and Eva enjoy a simple bohemian existence on a tightly packed riverboat chugging its way along London’s channels, a life inspired in no small part by Eva’s former commune-living mother. Kat is content with the status quo, but Eva wants a baby. Enter Roger, Kat’s cheerful bumbling friend from Barcelona who, along with his good humor, also brings sperm needed to create a human being. A hasty drunken agreement is made and Eva’s long-awaited pregnancy begins. One problem: no one – not a boat remodeler, nor a part-time salsa instructor, nor a general vagabond, is sure of what role they want or are capable of playing in the baby’s life. Smart yet accessible, Kat and Eva’s emotional trip offers a genuine meditation on modern love and family.
