Money can't buy happiness for career-driven mom Megan Mills (Kristy Swanson) or her family. Even a multi-million dollar windfall from a company merger is not enough to make up for the time that Megan lost with her husband, Mike (Scott Grimes) and her twin children, Sean (Paul Butcher) and Zoe (Allie Gonino). When Mike leaves her and joins Sean and Zoe in college, Megan realizes she must take drastic measures to bring her family back together. In order to save her marriage and reconnect with her children, she enrolls alongside them as a college undergrad.
Megan quickly discovers that rebuilding her family while surviving freshman year is going to take much more than just business prowess and school spirit. Despite her attempts to help her children adjust to college life, the kids are not pleased to have their mom as a classmate. Megan only wants what is best for her family, but begins to question if she still has a part in it. With a tempting job offer waiting for her back at home, will Megan decide to drop out of campus life or does she have what it takes to graduate with family honors?
