The Family Way

A family is thrown into turmoil when a positive pregnancy test is found in the bathroom drawer. Mother and daughter Julia and Ruth get their pregnancy tests mixed up when they both hide them in the bathroom. They set out to discreetly buy pregnancy tests in their small Irish suburban town, but are thwarted at every turn, bumping into people they know. Word spreads and friends and neighbors turn up at their home to find out the 'news' from distressed dad Robert.
