Second Coming

 
Jackie, Mark und ihr elfjähriger Sohn JJ sind eine intakte Kleinfamilie, die sich im heutigen London durchschlägt. Familiäres Kräftespiel, Neckereien und Spaß sind Teil ihres Alltags. Als Jackie bemerkt, dass sie schwanger ist, ist sie perplex. Ihre Ehe ist stark, aber als hart arbeitende Eltern sind sie und Mark sich schon länger nicht mehr körperlich nahegekommen. Jackies Verwirrung schlägt in Sorge um; dennoch versucht sie, ihr Leben weiterzuleben und sagt einfach nichts.

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.
