What to Name Your Baby

Synopsis

What To Name Your Baby is a dance of exaggerations about the joys and terrors of expectant parents as they contemplate the arrival of their first baby. The locations and speed capture the manic energy of the hyper expectant father and preserve a glimpse of a magical moment in the delighted dancing of the nine months pregnant Karen Pearlman.
