Michelle is pregnant, but she shouldn't be. There's no hormonal evidence that she's with child, and yet as she lies there on the hospital bed the ultrasound scan clearly shows a fetus present. She's rescued from capture - and the threat of experimentation - by a masked stranger, but is she being helped, or is she now at more risk? Soon enough Michelle escapes on her own. She feels the call of the lake waters. Her body is pregnant in appearance and she feels fevered. Michelle knows the lake water will cool her and no matter how deep she dives, it will not kill her. Eventually Michelle is united with those who are like her, but can she trust them? These women who are pregnant, yet not.
