‘I could fly to New York and back every day for seven years and still not leave a carbon footprint as big as if I have a child. Ten thousand tonnes of CO2. That’s the weight of the Eiffel Tower. I’d be giving birth to the Eiffel Tower.’
In a time of global anxiety, terrorism, erratic weather and political unrest, a young couple want a child but are running out of time. If they over think it, they’ll never do it. But if they rush, it could be a disaster. They want to have a child for the right reasons. Except, what exactly are the right reasons? And what will be the first to destruct — the planet or the relationship?

    I’ve always thought

    I’m okay, I’m an okay person. A normal enough person. Basically, you know, good.

    I wish I’d read more when I was younger. Or just, maybe slept with more people. Or travelled. It’s going to be harder to travel now you know, with

    nothing’s ending. It’s the start of something. I’m young. We’re young. It’s exciting.

    Can’t tell if my eyes are open. Am I keeping you awake?

    Just can’t stop thinking. Everything. Life. The universe.

    Death.

    Try to picture what I’ll look like. Dead. Stopped.
    Just another object in the room. Who’ll see me like that.
