Forty-one-year old Morgan’s baby has been born dead, eighteen-year-old Dolores is pregnant with a child she doesn’t want, and failed midwife Elena is seeking either redemption or a career change. As both women confront their fears, their desires, and each other, dead baby Constantinople roams the world, searching for the meaning of the word “wow,” a satisfying explanation of S&M, and above all, his mother.
