While Sarah and Jeff are trying hard to conceive but are facing fertility issues, Donny and Taylor want to have a baby, but are not yet prepared for the responsibility.

One day, during a casual conversation, the two couples brainstorm an unconventional solution to their problems. They decide to have a baby together and raise the child as co-parents.
