Synopsis: It’s the week before Christmas, 1950 in San Diego California.  Betty, a single mother, is working as a waitress to put food on the table for her two young daughters. As she is serving lunch, Harold, a sailor walks in the door to order the “Workingman’s Special” of roast beef and mashed potatoes.  At that moment, these two strangers are connected. Harold asks Betty one important question and the answer starts their life journey together. Twelve is the love story of one woman’s quest to fulfill her dream of having a large family and the man who supports her through many ups and downs.
