Marsha apologizes when her mother finds her in the closet; her mother tells Marsha to never fall in love, get married, and have children. Twenty-five years later, Marsha is married to Ray and they are looking towards adopting a child. After going to an adoption clinic, they apply for an adoption trial where they take care of a robotic baby before they can adopt a human child.

Marsha brings the robot baby to her father, a handyman, and sees if he can tamper with the electronics of the robot. However, Marsha’s father worries that the doctors of the adoption clinic will detect the alteration of the robot. Nonetheless, Marsha persists on getting the baby reprogrammed and leaves the baby to her father while Marsha goes to work. As Marsha comes home to the robot baby now automated, she attempts to talk to the baby. However, the robot baby goes berserk and attacks Marsha. Marsha finds the robot baby in the closet, then remembers her young self hiding in the closet as her own mother was angry.
