Living in a cramped houseboat moored in London’s scenic canals, dance teacher Eva and her bartender partner, Kat, might not have much in the way of worldly possessions but are the very picture of radiant youth — carefree, crazy in love, and open to whatever life throws their way. When Eva’s beloved cat Chorizo dies, his death unexpectedly awakens a deeper nurturing instinct in her, a long-buried desire to become a mother. After a visit from Kat’s freewheeling, womanizing Spanish friend Roger leads to a booze-soaked agreement to provide his “services” in helping Eva conceive, Kat’s initial reluctance about the idea of parenthood becomes a raging storm of doubt, placing her outside the giddiness of the young family-to-be and leading to a most unusual of love triangles in this funny, raw, and realistic new comedy from writer/director Carlos Marques-Marcet.
