Second Coming

Jackie, Mark, and their eleven-year-old son JJ are a close family navigating their way through life in present day London. Family dynamics, banter, and humor are part of their everyday lives. Jackie discovers she is pregnant and is perplexed. Their marriage is strong but as busy working parents she and Mark haven’t been physical in their relationship for a while. Jackie’s confusion regarding the pregnancy grows to concern as she increasingly believes that the baby can’t be Mark’s. Jackie says nothing of her situation, trying to maintain everyday life.
