Lia meets the other three women, who already are friends and pregnant. She joins their circle as she sees sisters with spousal troubles. Can this quartet provide the safety net and support that each one desperately needs at a critical time in their prospective lives?

LITTLE EARTHQUAKES is a character study that runs along four subplots that rotate between the women, but intersects as each tries to be there for the others.
