This is the hysterical tale of Jerri Blank, a 47 year old ex-con junkie who decides to return home after 32 years, to find her father has slipped into self-induced coma brought on by her disappearance. With hopes of jarring her father from his eternal slumber, Jerri decides to turn her life around by picking up exactly where she left off – at high school. Seeking to find that ‘special thing’ that will erase 32 years of debauchery, Jerri stumbles upon the school State Science Fair. Convinced that winning the fair will resurrect her father, she signs up, expecting an easy stroll down the road to victory. Not surprisingly, she finds that the path is fraught with the many adolescent problems and temptations that plague all teenagers, but especially this 47 year old former boozer, user and looser.
