Daniel and Oliver are riding high on a wave of happiness as they convert the study into a nursery and prepare the house for the new member of the family .

Then, out of the blue, Daniel’s mother turns up uninvited to the baby shower. She has a few home truths to share with the men. These truths that start to reveal the weaknesses in Daniel and Oliver’s relationship. Are they really ready for a baby? And what about Priya?
