Storyline

Arturo, who has just turned 15, is in love with 13-year-old Paloma. In a moment of passion at a ski lodge while on a field trip to the mountains with their schoolmates, he gets her pregnant. Afraid of what may happen to them if their strict (but somewhat inattentive) parents or any of the rather straight-laced teachers at their Catholic school find out about the baby, Arturo and Paloma turn to their young friends and relatives for help instead. This proves to be something of a coming-of-age for everyone involved as they try to help the young couple get married, conceal the pregnancy from their parents, and prepare for the birth. The many adventures they have while doing this, while often amusing, help drive home to them that the old wives' tale about storks bringing babies is just a myth (hence the title), and pregnancy and childbirth are actually very serious matters.

This movie is not about an abortion!
9 December 2004 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

The other summary written here is totally incorrect.

This movie is about a group of teenage friends that get involved in the early pregnancy of one of them. Paloma meets Arturo, they fall in love and on a mountain trip she gets pregnant.

Basically the movie discusses, very lightly, the consequences of getting in these kind of situations while being too young. But it is also a comedy only because of Paloma's and Arturo's friends trying to keep the baby a secret from their families. I saw this movie when I was a teenager and I loved it, I still do. You can learn so much from the story and, by the way, SPOILER ALERT, there's not an abortion in this film.

From my perspective, this movie is about loyalty,responsibility, love, friendship and life. Are you willing to go this far for your friends?
