Jake Ferrari (Tara Subkoff, “American Pie”) is a teenage girl who likes candy more than anything else. When she is abruptly abandoned by her mother, Jake decides to track down, and move in with, her sister Darlene (Kristy Swanson, “Big Daddy”). As it turns out, Darlene does not want her either. Jake is stranded until Marcia Guerra (Sandra Bernhard, “The King of Comedy”) takes her in. Marcia runs Jean’s American Spa, a sexy, irreverent massage parlor next door. Marcia and Jake develop a strong bond. Jake soon becomes part of the American Spa “family” along with Teddy, Coco and Bambi. The result is a comic coming of age story about how family, modern love and candy can all be good for you in small doses.
