To further complicate the daily rigors of teenage life, her father, Robert, an advertising executive who has since rebuilt his business, tries to do the same with his relationship with his daughter.

He tries to find out about his daughter’s personal life with the help of his newly appointed, 19 year-old driver/intern, Jack. Practically being raised by her extended family, Tennie although very academically inclined and mature for her age, with compassion for others, she’s got a touch of sarcasm, and a hint of rebelliousness. After she catches on to her father’s plan, Tennie realizes that in order to get her father off of her back, she needs to convince him to find a lady friend.
