Overview

Getting born is trickier than Spanky ever imagined.

Yearning for life, Spanky chooses Nina, a flighty actress just out of college, and Rick, a sax player who changes tires to get by, to be his parents. Only Nina seems to be hung up on her gay guy friend Pablo, and Nina’s best girlfriend Dink is hung up her! Will Nina and Rick get it together in time to conceive Spanky before he evaporates? And if this hurdle gets crossed, will they choose to keep him?

There’s not much Spanky can do but watch from above while his fate plays out—and if that’s not scary enough—an unexpected twist of fate makes Spanky have to completely reevaluate his expectations. He’s a girl!

A poignant, hilarious, unforgettable look at life, love, gender, and the essence of what makes us who we are.
