Julia’s best friend Toby has been there for her since her days as a student, providing good times and occasionally a shoulder to cry on. It’s only when his spontaneous marriage proposal to his glamorous ballerina girlfriend, Ruby, is humiliatingly rejected that she realises that she wants much more from him. His reciprocation of romantic feelings leads to a whirlwind weekend of passionate declarations and intense sex. The realisation that they are simply meant to be together is surprising but welcome. Everything seems to have fallen into place, until Toby receives a life-changing text message from a distraught Ruby. She is pregnant. Reluctant but determined to do the right thing, Toby breaks off his new relationship with Julia via email and decides to give his relationship with Ruby another chance for the sake of their unborn child. Julia is left heartbroken, wondering whether she will ever be able to get over Toby and move on with her life. What she doesn’t realise is that recovering from Toby’s rejection is far from being the biggest challenge she is about to face.
