AL MARINO is an immature, but likeable, med student coasting along in life. He and his side-kick, TONE, try to enjoy their youth by conquering the “ladies of the world”. This bites Al in the arse when his reckless decisions get KARI MANNING pregnant. Her dad just happens to be, JOSEPH MANNING, the Medical Director of Signature Injury Clinic (SIC) – his med-school placement in Birmingham, England.
Although one of the brightest students at SIC, Al is very disconnected from the pregnancy. He avoids KARI as much as possible. But after he is brought in to deliver his baby, ANGELINA, he attempts to embrace this new responsibility of fatherhood. It is a struggle to complete studies, his internship and seek his residency placement, but Al handles it all quite well. Then the first bombshell drops. The mom disappears and leaves Al –literally- holding the baby.
