Thirty-four-year-old Ladoo, a simple middle-class divorcée from Rishikesh, wants only one thing from life - a baby. She eats gondh halwa, drinks badam milk, and takes folic acid to stop her ticking biological clock and become the world’s most fertile woman.
When an accidental meeting with a gynaecologist reveals that her ‘eggs are drying up’ and finding a sperm donor is her last chance of having a child, Ladoo races against time to find the right baby daddy, whose kundali matches her, while addressing her own mixed feelings about whether Mr. Right Donor can also be Mr. Right.
Along the way, Ladoo must figure out whether motherhood means marriage, whether being a single mother means loneliness, whether ‘my body, my rules’ applies to women, and whether doing something scandalous is outrageous or courageous.
