Emily Smith-Dungy is a 16-year-old super high achieving student with a great passion for jumping rope. However, she becomes increasingly annoyed with her parents - Samantha, a business executive with her thoughts only on herself, and Duncan, a cheerful but equally self-absorbed artist - as they persistently show a lack of support for their children, and she is stretched to breaking point when they fail to show up at her all-important Michigan state rope jumping competition. She drugs her parents' wine glasses with sleeping pills and ties them to chairs with her skipping ropes, determined to force them to listen to her and her brother and sister Lucinda and Jackson. She faces them with multiple choice questions and assessments about being parents mentoring them on appropriate topics of conversation around her friends and boyfriends and the sensible levels of alcohol consumption all in order to rebuild her family and gain a little more attention from her career-obsessed and family-ignorant parents.
