Breech

Frankie, 16 years old and 6 months pregnant, meets with her two closest friends to figure out how to ditch the gender-reveal party her mother is throwing. In denial of her pregnancy and convinced she remains the alpha of the team, her world starts to crumble as she realizes her teenage years are disappearing and the perception she has of the world is just fantasy.
