Ryden Malby (Alexis Bledel) had a plan. Do well in high school, thereby receiving a great college scholarship. Now that she's finally graduated, it's time for her to find a gorgeous loft apartment and land her dream job at the city's best publishing house.
But when Jessica Bard (Catherine Reitman), Ryden's college nemesis, steals her perfect job, Ryden is forced to move back to her childhood home. Stuck with her eccentric family—a stubborn do-it-yourself dad (Michael Keaton), an overly thrifty mom (Jane Lynch), a politically incorrect grandma (Carol Burnett), a very odd little brother (Bobby Coleman)—and a growing stack of rejected job applications, Ryden starts to feel like she's going nowhere. The only upside is spending time with her best friend, Adam (Zach Gilford)—and running into her hot next-door neighbor, David (Rodrigo Santoro).
But if Ryden's going to survive life as a post grad, it may be time to come up with a new plan...
