If being a mom was all about popping out a baby after 9 months of pregnancy, life would have been easier for Charlotte Garnett. Alas, it's not the case for her.
When her baby has grown into a smart girl and starts questioning the father's absence, Charlotte's parenting is being tested. Her worst fear is having to tell her 7-year-old daughter that she was conceived in a one-night stand with a total stranger. Out of panic, Charlotte chooses to lie, promising herself she will tell the girl the truth when she's a little older.
The best-laid plan turns to hell as fate decides to bring the man back into her life when she least expects it. And worse, he's the CEO she's cross with at her new workplace. Hell breaks loose. Charlotte is eventually confronted by her own lies.
