CONNIE wants to know what it feels like to have sex without a condom. However, her boyfriend fears that she will get pregnant accidentally. As he feared, the young woman gets pregnant, but he never finds out.
Connie, very scared, decides to abort because she thinks he will hate her when he finds out. She seeks information about abortion consequences, which leads her to regret having an abortion procedure.

Instead, she tries to interrupt the pregnancy by eating abortive food and drinking alcohol. After these unsuccessful attempts to interrupt the pregnancy, Connie decides to have the baby and breaks up with her boyfriend.
After some months of gestation, she is ready to tell him the truth but while walking to meet her ex-boyfriend, unexpectedly, a door opens and hits her hard in the belly, causing the loss of the baby.
