Lisa Roberts is a single, working mom with two girls - Andee, twelve, and Hannah, six. She believes in a strict regimen for her daughters, including a healthy diet of non-processed foods, lots of exercise, and the sharing of responsibilities. In her mind, this holy trinity makes life at home run more smoothly. Her ex-boyfriend, Dan McDermid, loves spending time with Lisa's two daughters but thinks she's way too hard on them. His mantra is "anything goes" - let them eat and do what they want; they'll learn from their mistakes. Lisa wants Dan to understand that parenting solo has unique challenges and requires disciplining the kids and getting them to pitch in. She gives Dan $300., a sum intended to last him through the weekend - including all the groceries, feeding the troops of girlfriends who come for a sleepover, and an expedition to the amusement park. Can Dan stay within the budget, get the girls to eat good foods, and survive to tell the tale?
