This story focuses on the taboo topic of miscarriage and pregnancy loss.  On a larger scale, the story is about overcoming obstacles and fears in search of what you truly want and need in life.  Three 30's something ladies, escape to wine country, drink a forbidden wine, and wake up to an alternate reality of what might have been.  When they see what they truly want in life, one of them revisits a past miscarriage, and comes face to face with her traumatic loss.  The events of the miscarriage is based off of a true story, and the flashbacks in the film is real footage from an actual pregnancy story.  This film hopes to let other women know they are not alone and to abolish the stigma that miscarriages have to be hidden.
