Mia is a granola-eating, sensible shoe-wearing, carbon footprint-conscious twenty-something living in a multicultural neighborhood in Chicago. Her mother, Babs, is a stiletto-wearing Zsa Zsa Gabor type who works as an activities hostess on a Caribbean cruise line . and if you guessed there's some tension there, you'd be right. Factor in an unexpected pregnancy and Mia's idealistic boyfriend-Lars is such a visionary he doesn't believe in the institution of marriage-and the mother-daughter relationship is, well, stretched very thin. As is Mia's sanity when Babs shows up to... help?
