This kooky comedy drama revolves around teenager Emily (Olesya Rulin) a high school jump rope champion. When her parents, businesswoman mother (Kristin Chenoworth) and artist father (Matthew Modine) fail to attend her competition, Emily hatches an unexpected plan.
Drugging her ‘imperfect’ parents and taking them hostage, Emily plans to both punish and retrain them in time for her next big competition. With the help of her siblings she puts her plan into action and chaos ensues. Although it seems like a sinister approach, this film ultimately has a message and Emily’s efforts begin to have a positive effect on the whole family.
If you’re looking for a well-acted, unique and strangely interesting comedy this might just be the one for you.
