Premise

When 38-year-old Natasha is unexpectedly landed with a baby, her life of doing what she wants, when she wants, dramatically implodes. Controlling, manipulative and with violent powers, the baby twists Natasha’s life into a horror show. Where does it come from? What does it want? And what lengths will Natasha have to go to in order to get her life back? She doesn’t want a baby. The baby wants her.[1]

  • Amira Ghazalla as Mrs. Eaves: The 73-year-old "enigma" who has spent 50 years living in her car.
  • Amber Grappy as Bobbi: Natasha's younger sister, who wants nothing more than to be a parent.
