A day-dreaming fifteen-year-old schoolgirl, from a very good home, becomes pregnant. She has encouraged a boy to seduce her, glories in her pregnant state, and is bitterly resentful when her parents talk her into having an abortion. To try to recapture her lost bliss, she pads herself up to appear pregnant, runs away from home, and finds refuge with a houseful of young squatters, most of whom are thrilled by the prospect of their baby. But Miranda has overdone the padding, making it appear that the babys due any moment now. How can Miranda save face and carry off the situation?
