Poppy, Annalise and Frankie work together. Poppy is recently divorced and not handling the split very well. Annalise is contentedly single, trying to be a caring friend while keeping her life of lies straight. Frankie is a wife and mom trying to balance motherhood and work, trying to make a friend or two, and keeping a secret that may destroy her marriage. As a way to restore some of her confidence, Poppy decides to start a private on-line group for child-free-by-choice women.
What starts out as a way for women who have chosen to remain child-free to encourage and support other like-thinking women soon turns into a war of words and actions with the local private moms' online group. A mole has infiltrated the child-free group and begins leaking malicious private posts to the moms' group. Suddenly lives are spinning out of control, and long held lies and secrets are close to erupting.
