A couple of students at Trinity College in Dublin quickly get the attention of an influential Hollywood agent. Playwright Jack Flynn is contracted as a script-writer, but it is his girlfriend Maria Reilly – the star of his Dublin play – who really makes an impact, first in a ten-episode Hollywood series and then in a film as a widow who saves her deceased husband’s floundering advertising and media business from collapse. She impulsively stopped taking contraceptives when she met and fell for writer Bertie Windsor in India, but she is now pregnant. He proposes on a bended knee, and she accepts. So they have a wedding ceremony with a few guests for a celebratory lunch in California, and Maria is taking a call from her Irish sister when her contractions start. She then delivers a boy, with assurances from her Hollywood producer that he will wait for six months before starting on her final series, which will have Maria as a US Presidential candidate.
