20 Weeks is romantic drama about love, science and how prenatal and genetic testing impacts everyday people. The story is about a couple, who after learning that their baby has a serious health issue in utero, must decide on whether to move forward. The film is told in a nonlinear fashion and integrates abstract scientific images into the story. It goes from the present moment to the past, of recounting the love and courtship of Maya and Ronan, who are a 30-something couple, through the tough decisions they must make, against the backdrop of modern day Los Angeles.
