Molly and Brad have a beautiful 6-month-old girl named Ava. Molly loves being a mother but is often tired, confused, and second-guesses herself. Her doctor tells her she may have postpartum depression. Worried about this diagnosis, Molly keeps it to herself. Brad, a fireman, tells her to join an online support group for mothers. In this support group, Molly meets Beth. Single mom and former nurse, Molly has a son named Robert. Robert was conceived in an affair with a married man, who wants nothing to do with Beth or the baby. Beth is a bit abrasive at first, but her help is soon welcome by Molly. It’s not long before Molly is sleeping all the time, forgetting about Ava, and abandoning her friends. Molly’s friend, Susan, knows something is wrong with Molly, Beth, and their relationship. Susan decides to get to the bottom of it. And that’s when it all hits the fan.
