"When Margot -- an unmarried, queer liberal -- announces to her ultra-conservative parents that she's pregnant, a family divided by clashing politics must find a way to band together in welcoming this new little life into the world or risk being torn irreparably apart."
MARGOT - mid-30s, any ethnicity, bisexual. A writer and rebel striving to live an authentic, creative life, often flying in the face of her conservative parents. Has never thought of herself as maternal -- can't keep a houseplant alive.
CLAIRE - Margot's sister, 30s. Takes charge in moments of crisis and conflict. Makes plans, gets involved.
DAVID - Margot's partner, any ethnicity. Sincere, kind, patient, maybe a little timid but brave where it counts.
RUTH - Margot and Claire's mother, 60s-70s. Conservative politically, but loves her kids unconditionally. Caring, warm, funny.
WALTER - Margot and Claire's father, white, 60s-70s. Conservative politically, struggling with his daughters' life choices. Can be gruff and distant, trying not to be.
