16-year-old Emily Smith-Dungy, an incredibly motivated, overachiever, has grown increasingly frustrated with her parents' lack of support and guidance. Her mom, Samantha, is a career-focused, no-nonsense high powered business executive. Her dad, Duncan, is a happy go-lucky artist who can't be bothered to earn a paycheck. When they missed their daughter's big jump-roping competition, Emily hits her breaking point and takes it upon herself to restore order in the home. With the help of her siblings, they unite and take their parents hostage in hopes to become a "family" again.
