Synopsis

Three members of an internet start-up's company dodgeball team have come to face their competition in a bid to maintain their perfect season. One of the team, Mackenzie, is six months pregnant, but she is determined to crush the opposition. However, as the team argues about whether Mackenzie should really be playing at all, the true identity of her baby's father is revealed. Personal friendships and the future of the company are threatened with the revelation. Can Malcolm forgive Mackenzie for moving on from him and having a baby with one of their clients? And can company boss, Diane, forgive Mackenzie for concealing the downfall of the business?
