The Lifetime series will take us into a post-apocalyptic time where people were stripped of their ability to reproduce. Now, the government tapped a scientific facility to give every woman a shot at starting their own family.
In 2025, the entire human race had reached the point of being extinct after a global infertility among women happened ten years ago. Despite all the efforts, only six babies were born in 2019. One of those who were blessed with a child was a single father named Kyle (Michael Graziadei), who struggles with his alcohol addiction.
Dr. Alison Scott (Marley Shelton) and her assistant, James (David Alpay), were determined on finding a solution to the alarming drop rate of the entire human population. Their hardwork finally paid off when they successfully fertiziled 100 human embryos.
The U.S. regime under the leadership of President of the United States (Yul Vasquez) will start to stop Alison’s scientific breakthrough. In order to do this, the government has tapped the newly elected director, Darius Hayes (Martin Donovan), of the U.S. Fertility Commission.
Furthermore, the government will take the suggestion of the scheming chief of staff, Vanessa Keller (Athena Karkanis). She influenced the president to raffle the precious fertilized eggs in a national lottery. The upcoming event will start conflicts in the decisions of the women who will take part of the contest. They will be blinded from the critical consequences that may happen in exchange of a chance of a lifetime.
