A comedy drama about Max, a tough cookie, who wants to forget the past and come to terms with her dad. Few girls suddenly find themselves with a fully-grown brother overnight, but everything that happens to Max is unusual. Like the time she got arrested and sent to prison for robbing one of her dad's supermarkets. On her release she is astonished to discover that a man of her own age has assumed her role in the family. By exercising her women's wiles and lock-picking talents she discovers that her new 'brother' comes from a company known as Rent-a-Family. She decides to confront her dad, but unforeseen events cause her plans to go awry and all of a sudden she is involved in a murder.
