Three women try to set aside their personal and romantic difficulties in order to help out a fourth -- though it isn't easy -- in the dramatic comedy Chocolate for Breakfast. Amy (Marin Hinkle) is a stockbroker whose career is on the upswing when one night, very much out of character, she goes a bit wild and has a one-night-stand. To her initial dismay, Amy soon discovers she's pregnant, but she decides to keep the baby, quit her job when it arrives, and raise it on her own. Amy shares an apartment with three friends who pitch in to help her when they're not dealing with their own problems. Jessica (Brooke Hailey) is a paralegal trying to get into law school, Nina (Callie Thorne) is juggling medical school and her first relationship that's actually working out, and K.C. (Isabel Gilles) is an artist whose most notable work currently adorns the wall of a bar's restroom. Chocolate for Breakfast was the debut feature for director Emily Baer; Baer also co-wrote the screenplay with Brooke Hailey, who plays Jessica.
