When Alison finds herself pregnant by a dead-beat boyfriend, she turns to abortion. In the clinic, as she waits for her name to be called, she encounters a cast of characters: a flamboyant counselor, a heart-weary receptionist, and an inner city girl who speaks her mind. She also meets a kind, understanding janitor. The two begin to talk and it becomes clear he is no mere janitor, but a messenger from God who has come to plead for the life of her baby. With the clock ticking precious minutes away, it is a fight for life or death. Suddenly a nurse appears...What will Alison choose?
