It happens. You meet someone at the bar, one thing leads to another, and the next thing you know you’re waking up wondering (and potentially regretting) exactly what took place the night before. Such is the case for Fred, who starts to panic when his free-spirited one night stand, Mindy, informs him that she’s not on birth control; but for some reason isn’t too concerned. Fred, determined not to become a father, is forced into an all-day adventure with Mindy that is filled with awkward social situations and untimely roadblocks as he struggles to preserve his New York City world.
