Hank and Marshall are quite happy in their Manhattan coexistence with their group of tight-knit friends, but when their best friend Stacia is suddenly abandoned by her married boyfriend, she reveals her desperation to have a child. In a moment of weakness and sympathy, Hank offers to donate his sperm and have a child with her. This decision inevitably causes a rift in his relationship with Marshall, who never wanted children and feels disregarded and replaced. 40 WEEKS is a tender and gentle comedy of relationships and all the chaos that ensues when a ticking biological clock enters the picture.
