"Funny and disturbing in the best way... Linda Cardelliniwow, is she good here: scary, weirdly sympathetic, pathetic, powerful"
San Francisco Chronicle
Leanne Miller (Linda Cardellini) is a 36-year-old wife and mother whose hunger for fame and fortune leads her down a dangerous path. A former beauty queen and prom queen, Leanne is fed up with her mundane lifestyle when she comes up with an outrageous scheme to make her family instant celebrities. Teaming up with her ex-boyfriend, Billy (Skeet Ulrich), and his ex-con buddy, Jebidiah (Craig Robinson), Leanne conspires to have her 11-year-old daughter, Patty (Urusula Parker), kidnapped for just for a month or two. All she has to do is keep the local press (Kristen Schaal) and Sherriff (Patrick Warburton) focused on the case at hand and off hers. What could go wrong?
