Tick-Tock. Tick-Tock.
It’s the biological clock.

A modern-day chick flick but with a real naked body, honest conversation and a side of poached eggs about a woman’s quest to unravel the motherhood question: where does her own desires end and biological programming begin? What to do with those (ageing) eggs? Everyone around her seems to be moving and she’s stuck still with the tick tick tock of the biological clock, her own expectations, and everyone else’s too. How to rewire the brain? A tragicomedy about reclaiming the body, resetting the mind and how to screw the biological clock.
