Pip, the spirit of a child yet to be born, is awakened early during a moment of false labor. Within the womb he encounters Quip, the spirit of his half-brother, who died in the same womb twenty years earlier. Quip introduces Pip to a world of uncertainty both inside and outside the womb, the latter through the peep-hole vantage point of their mother's navel. Pip finds himself possessing the mythical omniscience that every child loses at birth, and must choose whether to stay unborn, or to brave the world beyond the womb.
