Rose and Johnny are a modern couple, a career couple. But suddenly - unexpectedly - Johnny's desire for commitment and a child brings them to an abrupt and painful crossroads. To save their relationship Rose, an ambitious photographer still struggling for recognition, reluctantly concedes - only to discover that achieving parenthood is far harder than either of them had bargained on.
Unflinchingly honest, ONE LIFE is a heart-stoppingly poignant and compelling exploration of womanhood and its most basic compulsion; the desire for children.
