Synopsis

When Joy’s fairytale romance crashes and burns on the eve of her 35th birthday, the TICK-TOCK of her biological clock pushes her into a series of romantic misadventures and provokes wild hallucinations. Pressures stack up against her, and just about everybody seems to have an opinion about what she should do with her dwindling egg count. Joy ends up at Dream Life Lab & Clinic where an angry mob battles to get inside to see an eccentric egg freezing doctor who offers women peace of mind in exchange for their life savings.
