"The Babymooners" is a mellow drama about Shaina Feinberg’s anxious and surreal journey into motherhood.
Babymoon: a relaxing vacation taken by parents-to-be before their baby is born. But nothing is relaxing for Shaina, a late blooming New Yorker, whose biggest fear is that parenthood means the end of creativity.
Two weeks before the birth of her first child, Shaina sits down to create a video letter for her unborn son. Clearly influenced by old Woody Allen films, her video letter becomes a series of vignettes that include her newly sober husband, her goofy Upper West Side parents, an adorable Shih Tzu mix, an overly anxious shrink and her own views on daytime television.
