THE STORY: New Yorkers Carolyn and Michael Goldenhersch are expecting, but when their child is born prematurely and dies, Carolyn is drawn to the doctor who attempted to save the baby’s life. An affair between them ensues, uniting all three on a poignant journey of self-discovery. Smart and rich with humor, A VERY COMMON PROCEDURE explores both literally and metaphorically the frailties and mysteries of the human heart.
