The Baby Shower

May and Christian are expecting their first child. What they’re not expecting are the hordes of guests gathered in their dark apartment ready to throw them a surprise baby shower. As the shock subsides and makes way for baby centric conversations and invasive personal questions, it’s unclear if the happy couple are hiding more than their social insecurities. As May starts to drink more than a woman in her condition should, matters come to a head as the much anticipated “baby cake” is unveiled.
