Grace is a single mum. She is too busy juggling work, bills and the very married Dr. Hartford, to give her daughter, Ansiedad the attention she desperately needs. When Ansiedad's English teacher, Ms. Armstrong, introducers her students to classic coming-of-age stories, Ansiedad is inspired to skip adolescence and jump-start her life without mum.
While Grace becomes preoccupied with the increasing affections of her co-worker, Ansiedad enlists the help of her loyal friend, Tavita to plot her shortcut to 'adulthood'. But as her misguided plan unravels, Ansiedad and Grace must learn that sometimes growing-up means acting your age.
