Ben sneaks his way through life, and several little affairs, getting rid of his soon-to-be ex-girlfriends through a visit to meet his hypercritical mother. He's also working on a very special project – the side product of a stem cell research project which produced unusually easy-to-handle babies like clockwork: They never cry and only need their diapers changed once a week. And they never (have to) grow up.
