Ellen Page takes the role of 16-year-old Juno MacGuff who became pregnant after her first sexual experience with her geeky friend Paulie (Michael Cera).

Now, the story focuses on Juno's relationship with the Lorings–one of whom is more interested in adoption than the other, and Juno learns that things may not always go as planned.
