Single, in her 40s and a victim of dystopian bureaucracy, Astrid wants a baby badly, but she's on her last egg. While waiting at a hospital to be inseminated, she's informed that her insurance has expired. With only 30 hours remaining, she races to have the procedure at an underground former veterinary clinic reeking of cabbage where the only available donors are bat shit crazy. She ends up with a quirky scientist she meets at a bar whose weird experiments intrigue her. Then, with only one hour remaining, Astrid opts to take the matter into her own hands, a decision that triggers astonishing consequences.
