Vada Sultenfuss has a holiday coming up, and an assignment: to do an essay on someone she admires and has never met. She decides she wants to do an assignment on her mother, but quickly realizes she knows very little about her. She manages to get her father to agree to let her go to LA to stay with her Uncle Phil and do some research on her mother. Once in LA, she finds herself under the protection of Nick, the son of Phil's girlfriend, who at first is very annoyed at losing his holidays to escort a hick *girl* around town. However, he soon becomes more involved in the difficult search. Written by

Did You Know?
At the beginning of the film Vada'a English teacher asks his class to write a paper about someone that they don't know. When questioning the class one of Vada's classmates says that he wants to write about Farrah Fawcett, due to the fact that he likes to watch her run on television, an obvious reference to her role on Charlie's Angels (1976). However, the film takes place in 1974 two years before Charlie's Angels premiered in addition Fawcett, although working as an actress, was a mostly an unknown at the time. See more
[narration to audience
I remember before I was born, wounded up like a fur ball in the highly overrated fetal position, luckily I'm not claustrophobic, but on rainy days I still felt a tightness in my left shoulder. So now that my stepmother's pregnant, I understand what the baby's going through, and I'm not jealous at all, really, not at all.
