    • Synopsis
    • When Liam spots one-legged beauty Anastasia during a mandatory exam at his town’s local school, he’s instantly hooked. Determined to find a way of getting closer to her, and fed up with his sheltered existence, Liam persuades the principle and his mom, Claire (Judy Greer), to give him a chance to try out high school life for himself.

      As her beloved son navigates a new and unfamiliar world of sex, drugs and social studies, and struggles to impress a girl who doesn’t even know he exists, his mom/best friend decides it’s time to teach him the ropes of teenage rebellion.
