Storyline

A young woman named Terry lives in poverty in a future America embroiled in an unending "war on terror." She faces an unplanned pregnancy, and must decide whether or not to enter a highly controversial government program that provides financial security for women in her situation. Entering the program will meet her financial needs but will put her at odds with everyone in her life and perhaps herself. Her journey toward a decision leads to an encounter with her estranged mother and causes Terry to face up to her haunted past and her uncertain future. Written by Phil Garrett
