BABY

BABY

Summer night in Stockholm. People meeting people. Loners and drifters hooking up. Babies making babies. Meet Emma, thirty-five, and Joel, seventeen, two strangers waiting for the night bus to take them home. They start talking and realize neither of them wants to go home. The night is theirs to take.
