Clate Randall does not recognize Maxine Anderson as the one night stand from years before. Uncharacteristically, he had become so drunk that he had lost the memory of much of that night. Maxine has reluctantly come to his door because the child, Annabelle, that they conceived that night has leukemia and needs an umbilical chord blood transfer from a sibling. Maxine wants Clate to be a sperm donor for a second child, but Clate refuses. He insists that they marry and create a home for both children. Clate is totally unaware of that Maxine's own father was incestuous and she has huge issues with fatherhood..
